Well, presumably someone is calling irq_set_irq_type() asking explicitly
for IRQ_TYPE_NONE. The code will now (as it always used to before David's
change) do exactly what you ask this to: it will ask the type to be set
to none.

If you don't want to set the type to none, don't call the interface asking
for that to happen.
