    Given that, I'm surprised that nobody has added a warning that
    prints when those two flags are both passed to request_irq().

    The problems have been around for a long time, "tested" and known
    to be broken. They'll never go away without nag messages nudging
    developers to fix the problems.

    That's the best solution for USB, given that IRQF_DISABLED isn't
    going to do what it claims to do.
