I used to get the "master interrupt lied" message quite frequently. 
Since it was not clear whether it really meant that the master had an 
extra bit set or that one (any) of the detail registers was missing an 
interrupt bit, I tried servicing the interrupt anyway. But it didn't 
help with any of the issues I was seeing at the time, and the message no 
longer occurs (on SKL) with more recent kernels.
