True, but I would keep this series feature/bug compatible with existing
code. Without that, tracking regression reports will be a nightmare. Its
a pretty major change already.

We can (and should) fix this, but I prefer thats done as follow-up patch
after this series is merged. That way a revert is easy.

BTW, I don't quite see which in-kernel module uses this interrupt. It
might be some out-of-tree code, or some code that since got removed from
