Kind of old now.  I don't know specifically of any reason that would
matter, but for several reasons I wouldn't be at all surprised.

"Consult individual device drivers' manual pages for available keywords
and their possible values."

I'm not really sure if uhci is set up to do that.  You definitely want
uhci on its own interrupt if you can, not because it necessarily
generates a lot of them, but because it can spend a lot of time handling
each one...

Have you checked what happens if you disable your APIC?
