That is indeed "lucky" as it looks as all the interrupts got disabled
on your machine. And all the drivers started to hit their error handling
code as they hit their timeouts.
But the weird part is that this message got written to disk so the interrupts
did get re-enabled.. Is this happening only on this machine?
Can you run the attached code and see what happens when the
Also, how much memory do you give to your domain?
