Just a quick follow-up: After some further searching I found the
following thread:

In this thread, Ian Campbell suggests to disable MSI for the guest, and
the submitter replies that it fixed the issue for him. So indeed it
seems to me like MSI in DomU is the cause for trouble here. I'll give
the suggested workaround a try within the next days and report back if
it works for me as well.
