    I take this back .. The comment at the top of handle_simple_irq() is,

    * Note: The caller is expected to handle the ack, clear, mask and
    * unmask issues if necessary.

    So we shouldn't need any flow control unless there is some other

    Additionally, we have a patch in the real time tree called
    "irq-mask-fix.patch" which adds an "unmask" to handle_simple_irq, but as
    the note says we don't need flow control..
