irqchip will mask it in the ARM interrupt controller, so we will certainly never
see an interrupt. I'm not sure on the exact guarantees V3D_INTENA and
V3D_INTCTL make - does the state in INTENA affect if V3D will signal an
interrupt in INTCTL? We're not currently clearing the latter in postinstall.

From a practical perspective, we're not doing anything in between uninstall
and postinstall that would trigger the interrupt. So in that sense
it's certainly
superfluous.
