    I'd prefer the following:

    void irq_off(void);
    void irq_on(void);

    flags_t irq_save(); /* the old irq_save_off() */
    void irq_restore(flags_t);

    void __irq_save(void); /* without saveing */

    rational: proper function-like API (should be inlines), irq save
    without disableing is very uncommon, better make the API symmetric.
