SubjectRe: [RFC][PATCH] irq: support IRQ_NESTED_THREAD with non-threaded interrupt handlers
From
I have a board with an I2C PCA9535 chip with two PHY interrupt lines
hooked up to. The pca953x driver calls set_irq_nested_thread on all
irq's on initialization. The PHY driver then calls request_irq, and has
no idea that it should actually be using a threaded handler.

With this patch, the PHY driver is able to work in this scenario
without changes (and so should any other driver using request_irq).
