    I don't think it does. There are two pieces to the problem

    a) Not dying horribly
    b) Handling it elegantly

    b) is driver specific (NAPI etc) and I think well understood to the point
    its being used already for performance reasons

    a) is as simple as

    if(stuck_in_irq(foo) && irq_shared(foo))
    {
    disable_real_irq(foo);
    timer_fake_irq_foo();
    }

    We know spoofing a shared irq is safe.
