Wouldn't be ambiguous?

1. User presses the key ->
a) we got edge followed by level signaling;
b) IRQ core masks line, calls handler, ACKs, unmasks;
c) somewhere here Press Event is sent;
d) we still have level... We get IRQ fired again? But see 1. It
obviously not the case.
2. User releases the key ->

So, the main question if I understood Dmitry correctly is the period
in time where IRQ line should be masked on one hand, and on the other
it will guarantee that user didn't release-press cylcle.

With Best Regards,
