It looks like this was possible after David's fix, which really
enabled running of the handler in free_irq, but before Andrew's patch
disabling local irqs for this time.

So, this bug should be fixed, but IMHO similar problem is possible in
request_irq. And, I think, this is not only about lockdep complaining,
but real lockup possibility, because any locks in such a handler are
taken in another, not expected for them context, and could be
vulnerable (especially with softirqs, but probably hardirqs as well).
