SubjectRe: [PATCH]: use spin_lock_irqsave in try_one_irq()

Cc'ed Ingo and Thomas.

The reason is that try_one_irq() is called both from hardirq context and softirq
context. And by default the timer handler poll_all_shared_irqs() is
called with irq enabled.
Then the two usage will cause inconsistent.

So I think the following patch is also workable to you.
