You cannot invoke those callbacks from __irq_do_set_handler() as that is
holding the irq descriptor lock with interrupts disabled.

The calling convention for irq_released_resources() is that it's called
with the bus lock held (if the chip provides the bus lock callbacks), but
definitely not with desc->lock held.

Needs more thought. Btw, the uninstall path does not invoke irq_deactive()
either.... I so hate that chained handler mess....
