Any side effect of this disabling interrupt  ?

Do you mean that all applications must use pulse api instead of alsa-pulse
plugin ?

Did your test included those voip application which require low latency ?

did your test only play one audio stream to the sound server ?

Do those alsa application still work with "hw" device when pulseaudio is
disabled ?
