Sure, I admit, it's not very good. :-) How about the below.

The sdio_irq_pending flag is used to let host drivers indicate that it
has signaled an IRQ. If that is the case and we only have a single
SDIO func that have claimed an SDIO IRQ, our assumption is that we can
avoid reading the SDIO_CCCR_INTx register and just call the SDIO func
irq handler immediately. This makes sense, but the flag is set/cleared
in a somewhat messy order, let's fix that up according to below.

First, the flag is currently set in sdio_run_irqs(), which is executed
as a work that was scheduled from sdio_signal_irq(). To make it more
implicit that the host have signaled an IRQ, let's instead immediately
set the flag in sdio_signal_irq(). This also makes the behavior
consistent with host drivers that uses the legacy,
mmc_signal_sdio_irq() API. This have no functional impact, because we
don't expect host drivers to call sdio_signal_irq() until after the
work (sdio_run_irqs()) have been executed anyways.

Second, currently we never clears the flag when using the
sdio_run_irqs() work, but only when using the sdio_irq_thread(). Let
make the behavior consistent, by moving the flag to be cleared inside
the common process_sdio_pending_irqs() function. Additionally, tweak
the behavior of the flag slightly, by avoiding to clear it unless we
processed the SDIO IRQ. The purpose with this at this point, is to
keep the information about whether there have been an SDIO IRQ
signaled by the host, so at system resume we can decide to process it
without reading the SDIO_CCCR_INTx register.

Correct!

At this point, for $subject patch and @subject series, I don't see any
issues. But perhaps when we go forward and start using the flag
slightly differently.

The changes later in the series relies on this change, as we start
making use of the flag to understand if we should ack an SDIO IRQ.
