Is the type of IRQ74 edge or line/eoi?
Since you registered the serial handler as threaded and the primary
handler did _not_ disable the irq source (due to the absence of the
IRQF_ONESHOT flag or a custom primary handler which does this by
changing a bit in the hardware) it is more or less luck that you did not
hang forever on the first serial interrupt. Well, it does not happen
with edge typed interrupt lines.

In theory it should be okay if the handler without ONESHOT is either
primary only or primary + threaded and the primary disables the irq
