So you're saying it's correct as it is now in __setup_irq(). Then I don't
really understand Marc's following comment from earlier in the discussion.
What else needs to be done if it is correct already?

"We could also consider extending this to support interrupt
hierarchies, as __setup_irq() seems only concerned with the top of the
stack (an IRQ provided by a generic MSI stack and backed by an irqchip
providing IRQCHIP_ONESHOT_SAFE would go unnoticed)."
