I wonder whether it can not be a default option or not by the following method:
  DEFINE_STATIC_KEY_FALSE(irqtime_account), and enable it according to
a boot param.

This will have no impact on performance with the disabled branch.
Meanwhile users can easily turn on the option to detect an irq flood
without  recompiling the kernel.

If it is doable, I will rework only on [1/2].

Yes, it raises a big challenge to my method. Kdump kernel miss the
whole picture of the first kernel's irq routing.
