You can achieve the same by looking at the kernel instrumentation, and in
particular, analysing the contents of the instrumentation buffer. You can
get it to record just the interrupt raise events, and count them. The
buffer can be memset to 0 to clear all records (albeit with interrupts
disabled if you want to make sure you don't mix the memset with incoming
