This is fine.

This is dangerous change. How did you test it?

The handler now can be called before chip and actual handling code is
registered. It means at least two possible (bad) scenarios:
1) the handler may dereference dangling or NULL pointer;
2) the IRQ may be level interrupt and we may got 100000 IRQs and
IRQ core will disable it leaving device completely unfunctional.
