OK, but this doesn't seem to answer Ingo's request "could you please send
that fix to me, against whatever base you have it tested on, and i'll merge
it to genirq/irqchips [and fix up genirq if needed]. Please also include a
description of the problem. How common is that edge retrigger problem, and
how come this has never been seen in the past years since we had
irqbalance?"

The genirq patches are stuck in limboland until issues like this are
resolved. I'm not planning on sending them to Linus for 2.6.18 so there's
no huge rush on it, but it would be nice to get all these loose ends tied
off reasonably promptly, please.
