My understanding in this case is that the pending register is just a
"copy" of the pending bits in the related hardware IP, so that clearing
it in the interrupt controller won't do much, since it will be re-set
just after the clear, while if you do clear the interrupt bit in the IP,
it will clear it automatically in the interrupt controller.
