I found a pile of e-mail started by Sergei Shtylyov on linuxppc-dev regarding this.
Subject: [PATCH] 2.6.18-rt7: PowerPC: fix breakage in threaded fasteoi type IRQ handlers
From: Sergei Shtylyov <sshtylyov@ru.mvista.com>
Date: Sun, 19 Nov 2006 22:43:34 +0300

Though I don't quite get the conclusion, the code does not work at least
on celleb when handle_percpu_irq is applied. Since the handle_percpu_irq calls
both .ask and .eoi and when ask is set to iic_eoi, then iic_eoi() is called twice
for one interrupt. It hits BUG_ON(iic->eoi_ptr < 0)!

Anthor workaround could be to add one more irq_chip structure for handle_percpu_irq
which does not have ack member...

Any comments?
