As far as I understand, it's already fixed there:

i40e: Fix for trace found with S4 state

This patch fixes a problem found in systems when entering
S4 state. This patch fixes the problem by ensuring that
the misc vector's IRQ is disabled as well. Without this
patch a stack trace can be seen upon entering S4 state.

However this seems like something that should be handled generically
in the irq-core especially since commit c5cb83bb337c
"genirq/cpuhotplug: Handle managed IRQs on CPU hotplug" was headed in
that direction. It's otherwise non-obvious when a driver needs to
release and re-acquire interrupts or be reworked to use managed
