Ok, what kind of ass-hat idiotic thing is this?

irqreturn_t uio_irq_handler(int irq, void *dev_id)
{
return IRQ_HANDLED;
}

exactly what is the point here? No way will I pull this kind of crap. You
just seem to have guaranteed a dead machine if the irq is level-triggered,
since it will keep on happening forever.

Please remove.

YOU CANNOT DO IRQ'S BY LETTING USER SPACE SORT IT OUT!

It's really that easy. The irq handler has to be _entirely_ in kernel
space. No user-space ass-hattery here.

And I don't care one whit if it happens to work on parport with an old
legacy ISA interrupt that is edge-triggered. That's not even the
interesting case. Never will be.

NAK NAK NAK NAK.
