Deassigning irqfd and assigning back caused spurious interrupt. fix this

Applied both, thanks.
Hmm, I see this in kvm master. Avi/Marcelo, since this is a bugfix, can
you queue this patchset for 2.6.33 and 2.6.32 stable as well please?

I'm uncomfortable with pushing Davide's patch into stable and possibly causing regressions with unrelated applications. Can't a guest live with a spurious interrupt? It's not like they're unknown.
