cscope would have helped you out here.
See arch/x86/pci/acpi.c:

int __init pci_acpi_init(void)
{
...
pcibios_enable_irq = acpi_pci_irq_enable;
pcibios_disable_irq = acpi_pci_irq_disable;
...
}
So I see how the IRQ is enabled and disabled. I still don't see where
an interrupt handler is bound to IRQ 225 (output you posted today in
another email). Nobin, can you dump /proc/interrupts when both drivers
are loaded and also send the dmesg output after both are loaded?

The "lspci" output Jiri asked for would be very helpful too.

thanks,
grant
