this is the second report in the last week which makes not a lot of sense.
And this oneis makes absolutely no sense at all.

This commit affects request_irq() and the related variants and has
exactly ZERO influence on anything related to that test case simply
because.

I seriously have to ask the question whether this test infrastructure is
actually measuring what it claims to measure.

As this commit clearly _cannot_ have the 'measured' side effect, this
points to some serious issue in the tests or the test infrastructure
itself.

Thanks,

tglx
