I'll be looking into this approach.

It is technically a better approach than mine since it prevents the IRQ
handler from ever reading a group 0 interrupt from INTACK.

Unfortunately the tentacles of this workaround reach pretty deep in the
memory management code (rather than being concentrated in the GIC
driver) but the improved runtime behaviour might be worth it.
