I thought disable|enable_irq() was being reference counted, so it
shouldn't impact the other peripherals for shared IRQs. I might have
understood this wrong though!?

Although, as if that's the case it also means that the IRQ can still
reach sdhci's irq handler as it hasn't actually been disabled.

Therefore, the only way we currently can make sure to don't get the
IRQ is to free and later re-request it. Now, apparently that has
issues when using threaded IRQ handlers.

I have recently discussed a related change on the genirq framework,
which in principle turned out that we concluded on needing a new API
to deal with PM related enable/disable IRQ cases.

Perhaps that's actually what we need to cover this case.

I agree. We need another solution!

Kind regards
