    Err ?

    IRQ happens

    IRQ is disabled by the generic handling code

    Handler is invoked and checks, whether the irq is from the device or
    - If not, it returns IRQ_NONE, so the next driver (e.g. disk) is
    - If yes, it masks the chip on the device, which disables the chip
    interrupt line and returns IRQ_HANDLED.

    In both cases the IRQ gets reenabled from the generic irq handling code
    on return, so why is the box dead ?
