No, not really. That's because the chained handler is actually an
interrupt flow, and not a normal handler. IRQF_SHARED acts at the wrong
level for that.

I can see two possibilities:

- the l2-intc gets turned into a normal handler, and does the demux
from there. Horrible stuff.

- the i2c controller gets parented to the l2c-int as a fake interrupt,
and gets called from there. Horrible stuff.

Pick your poison... :-/

Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
