Currently, the interrupt status notification prevents log spam by
remembering whether previous interrupt wakeup was due to traffic or due
to timeout expiring. However, it is a single variable that can
potentially be accessed from multiple threads, so it is not thread-safe.

Fix it by having per-lcore interrupt status.
