These are fairly normal.

I believe it's always possible to cause an irq loop. This happens when
the PMU is programmed to cause PMIs on multiple counters
too quickly. Maybe should just recover from it without printing such
scary messages.

Right now the scary message is justified because it resets the complete
PMU. Perhaps need to be a bit more selective resetting on only
the events that loop.

This looks independent.

I would apply the following patch (cut'n'pasted, so may need manual apply)
and then run with

cd /sys/kernel/debug/tracing
echo 50000 > buffer_size_kb
echo default_do_nmi > set_graph_function
echo 1 > events/msr/enable
echo 'msr != 0xc0000100 && msr != 0x6e0' > events/msr/write_msr/filter
echo function_graph > current_tracer
echo printk:traceoff > set_ftrace_filter
echo 1 > tracing_on

and then collect the trace from /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace
after the oops. This should show the context of when it happens.
