What I mean is, this code tries to handle design problems
without changing too much of the original code at first.

The problem here is not that the fsm_irq function is called on interrupt,
if we have an interrupt it must be signaled to user land.
The problem is that this state is entered at the wrong moment.

STANDBY should be entered, during the mdev_open when we realize the QEMU
device,
and not during the probe, in which we should stay in NOT_OPER until we
get the QEMU device.

The probe() and mdev_open() function should be modified, not the state
table.

Regards,

Pierre
