IRQ state is not a factor; that's already coded correctly.

The issue here is lockdep falsely reporting recursive locking.

Again, the locking is correct; it's lockdep getting confused,
because it puts all irq_desc[].lock instances in the same bag
instead of treating parent and child locks differently. So
when something holding a child lock makes a call that grabs
a parent lock, it thinks that could be recursive.

Never had reason to look at such stuff; you didn't mention the
option in the earlier chitchat...

All this stuff is set up in kernel/irq/handle.c ... spinlocks
are initialized statically, lock classes are set up even before
the kernel banner is printed, by early_init_irq_lock_class().

So I'm think that the reason this only _changes_ the false
recursion notification is that it doesn't support overriding
such class annotations; it doesn't seem to forget about the
first one set up. Note that the code I posted earlier, using
the _nested annotations, isn't confused like this...

=================== CUT
Try to remove some false lockdep warnings about lock recursion,
by marking putting GPIO irq_desc locks into their own class.
But that doesn't seem to work; all it does is change the fault
report to be more confusing:

[ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
2.6.25-rc3 #80
swapper/1 is trying to acquire lock:
(&irq_desc_lock_class){+...}, at: [<c007150c>] set_irq_wake+0x34/0xe8
but task is already holding lock:
(&irq_desc_lock_class){+...}, at: [<c007150c>] set_irq_wake+0x34/0xe8
other info that might help us debug this:
2 locks held by swapper/1:
