I was thinking more of something like this :

--- irq.c.orig 2004-08-16 14:26:34.000000000 +0200
+++ irq.c 2004-08-18 17:23:18.011059064 +0200
@@ -955,11 +955,16 @@
return -EBUSY;
}

- /* add new interrupt at end of irq queue */
- do {
- p = &old->next;
- old = *p;
- } while (old);
+ if (new->flags & SA_INTERRUPT)
+ /* add interrupt at the start of the queue */
+ new->next = old;
+ else
+ /* add new interrupt at end of irq queue */
+ do {
+ p = &old->next;
+ old = *p;
+ } while (old);
+
shared = 1;
}
