You've accidentally got "by irq" twice there and "may irq is not a valid
one" doesn't read quite right.
Perhaps something like:
"When getting an event channel from an IRQ if the IRQ is not valid then
warn and return an error in the form of the invalid event channel.
This catches errors such as trying to notify an IRQ before connecting to
the backend (e.g. during suspend/resume)."
