Ido, Thomas,

Sorry for being late into the discussion.
Have couple of concerns regarding this hunk..

If we hit this warning we do not know if this IRQTF_RUNTHREAD bit's count in
desc->threads_active was decremented or not.

Nevertheless, wake_threads_waitq() gets called and desc->threads_active gets
decremented. As result, if desc->threads_active initially was decremented, we
might wrongly wake up the queue while some threaded handler is still running.

By contrast, if we choose not to wake up here, we might stuck in
synchronize_irq(). Which is probably better than a fooling synchronize_irq().

This check is called when the action is already removed in __free_irq() and no
desc->lock is held. Hence, a concurrent __setup_irq() could reallocate the very
same bit in the meantime. So neither irq_finalize_oneshot() nor the warning
are legitimate here.
