The problem is that you cannot decide to use another flow handler, as
this handler is a constraint imposed by the root interrupt
controller. You can overload it, but you then need to make sure that
the interrupt will *never* fire at the GIC level, ever.

Can you actually enforce this?

Assuming you can, this could work. But then the subsequent question
is: Why do you have the interrupt at the TLMM level at all? Overall,
I'm a bit worried of this "now you see me, now you don't" kind of
game behind the kernel back. Is there a way we can stop playing that
game and stick to one single path for interrupt delivery?

It looks to me that the way this logic is split across two drivers is
a major cause of headache. My advise is that either you have one
single point of interrupt handling for such interrupt, or you force a
TLMM wake-up on such an event, forcing it to handle the interrupt the
"normal way"...



Jazz is not dead, it just smell funny.
