    Subject[PATCH][PPC32] Don't synchronize in disable_irq() if no handler
    This patch is the ppc32 counterpart to a fix that went into
    arch/i386/kernel/irq.c last October. The bug was noted by Al Viro: if
    no handler exists, and we have IRQ_INPROGRESS set because of an
    earlier irq that got through, synchronize_irq() will end up waiting
