    Actually in this case that won't work as the interrupt is generated by
    the chip interrupt controller and as the chip is I2C/SPI controlled it
    is itself threaded and can only generate threaded interrupts as genirq
    can't get back into hard interrupt context.

    As a result of this restriction when an interrupt handler doesn't care
    what context it runs in it's better to use request_any_context_irq().
    This will do a normal IRQ when it can but will bind successfully to a
    threaded IRQ if that's what's provided.
