thanks for bringing it this far.

Can someone verify the IRQ line is remains asserted?

If the IRQ line is asserted, this sounds like a problem in iosapic code.
I've seen this behavior before when iosapic_isr() didn't write the
correct value to the EOI register. I'll review the iosapic code.
But if someone could give me confidence the IRQ is asserted, I'd
appreciate it.
