That's a fair point.

For consistency, we could remove the init_IRQ() panic() and instead log
the registered handlers, e.g.

| pr_info("Root IRQ handler is %ps\n", handle_arch_irq);
| pr_info("Root FIQ handler is %ps\n", handle_arch_fiq);

... or do that inside the set_handle_{irq,fiq}() functions. That way the
messages (or absence thereof) would be sufficient to diagnose the lack
of a root IRQ/FIQ handler when IRQ/FIQ happens to be quiescent.

Does that sound any better?

Sure, and FWIW I agree with the nit!
Thanks,
Mark.
