OK

The comment above should be a sufficient explanation, isn't it?

It's a tri-state just because it "merges" two variables: internal state (enabled/disabled)
and the value passed by "noirqtime" option (turn it on, default/turn it off). It can be
enabled only if it was not turned off explicitly, i.e. -1 => 1 transition is possible,
but 0 -> 1 is not. The same rule applies to a situation when an unstable clock is detected.
