My suggestion with the nested-handler was nonsense. The suggestion with
the local_irq_disable() before invoking generic_handle_irq() did avoid
the warning but the NFS-root was not stable (and Daniel reported a lot
of USB interrupts coming which indicates that the interrupt-handler is
not acknowledging the interrupt properly).

It works by reverting the IRQ-domain code as this patch does. "Works" as
in "no warnings" and "NFS-root looks stable".

You have two ACKs on that patch. I could ask Daniel to repost the patch
with additional informations.
My last information from Daniel was that the rpi tree works and I'm not
sure if he is looking for the missing ingredient or preferring the
removal of the non-working code.
