SubjectSome IRQ comment cleanups
It seems IRQ_DELAYED_DISABLE is dead and desc->chip->handle_irq() now
lives as desc->handle_irq() (whitespace-damaged). Comments?

Not sure what to do with the following (IRQ_DELAYED_DISABLE):

static int setup_ioapic_entry(int apic, int irq,
struct IO_APIC_route_entry *entry,
unsigned int destination, int trigger,
int polarity, int vector)

<title>Delayed interrupt disable</title>
This per interrupt selectable feature, which was introduced by Russell
King in the ARM interrupt implementation, does not mask an interrupt
at the hardware level when disable_irq() is called. The interrupt is
kept enabled and is masked in the flow handler when an interrupt event
happens. This prevents losing edge interrupts on hardware which does
not store an edge interrupt event while the interrupt is disabled at
the hardware level. When an interrupt arrives while the IRQ_DISABLED
flag is set, then the interrupt is masked at the hardware level and
the IRQ_PENDING bit is set. When the interrupt is re-enabled by
enable_irq() the pending bit is checked and if it is set, the
interrupt is resent either via hardware or by a software resend
mechanism. (It's necessary to enable CONFIG_HARDIRQS_SW_RESEND when
you want to use the delayed interrupt disable feature and your
hardware is not capable of retriggering an interrupt.)
The delayed interrupt disable can be runtime enabled, per interrupt,
by setting the IRQ_DELAYED_DISABLE flag in the irq_desc status field.
