Makes sense. It should be fine either way AFAIU.

CSCH, more precisely the clear function is supposed to clear the
interruption request(s) too. But I guess there is no way of the CP to
identify an I/O interrupt that should have been cleared -- that is catch
us disrespecting the architecture. I can't think of a way to establish
must happen before relationship...

But discarding the first interrupt and delivering just one for the CSCH
is fine too for the same reason.
