Well, I chose this way to only printk the error once. With your suggestion it
might be printed in each loop, dunno how often/fast these IRQ stats are set
again after clearing. This would end in an endless loop if error flags are set
again fast enough, but see below.
But in general I like this approach.

The actual problem I saw was a CMD6 command with an R1b response where the IRQ
for the 'not busy' event was sent during ISR for the response. So I think
normally this should only occur once.
Regarding error flags I masked the unhandled flags out in order to print an
error only once, even if they might be set again in the next loop. With a
simple check on intmask they might occur up to 16 times in the kernel log.
IMHO it makes no sense to repeatedly print errors about interrupt flags we
don't handle.

Suggestions to get a more clean way?

Best regards,
Alexander
