so be sure to only use the intel driver from the (x)ubuntu archive.

Purge  xserver-xorg-video-intel (sudo apt-get purge ....)
then reinstall it.
Of course if some non trusted packages has also been installed, then goto 
ubuntu archive.

If the problem still persist after the above tweaks done, then check
with a previous kernel. And the irq bios settings needs indeed to be
checked.

Title:
  High CPU usage of /usr/lib/xorg/Xorg

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:
  Incomplete

Bug description:
  My laptop is running Xubuntu 16.04 and recently (don't know when
  exactly) started showing very sluggish display and input behavior:

   - Typed input lags several characters behind.
   - Mouse input is slow (e.g. when drag and dropping elements)
   - /user/lib/xorg/Xorg uses high percantage of CPU ressources (oftentimes 
100%)

  Any help is appreciated.

  Please let me know if you need any more information.
