    With handle_simple_irq(), we no longer need to define irq_{,un}mask() methods
    in our irq_chips. Hence the "old" m68k platform interrupt code seems to be much
    closer to genirq than I thought...

    Does this make sense?

    when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
