As Oliver pointed out, part of confusion wa my asumption that _irqsave
verion saves actual interrupt mask. It actually does not.

This leaves me with a question - how can I know whether interrupts may
(not) be disabled at particular point? In particular, is it safe to
assume that any place marked at "code may sleep" has interrupts enabled?

Thank you both!
