The KTR trace would be useful to figure out what's happening.

To do that you can compile the host kernel and vmm.ko with the
following options:
options KTR
options KTR_MASK=(KTR_GEN)
options KTR_ENTRIES=(4*1024*1024)

And when you see the interrupt storm message in the guest you can execute:
sudo ktrdump -cto /tmp/ktrdump.out
