    As I said you are misunderstanding me .. which is why this is not
    relevant any more ..

    Please move on .

    Isn't the listing inconsistent ? /proc/interrupts only showing some
    special interrupts, and not others .. For example it shows NMI which is
    not related to request_irq() .. It shows some clock driver devices
    (timer, NMI, LOC) and not others (clock event devices) ..
