It seems you mean
vfio_platform_set_irqs_ioctl() ->
vfio_platform_set_irq_trigger ->
handler() ?

so, will it be better to move the irqsave out of the vfio_automasked_irq_handler()
and put it to where the function is called in non-IRQ context?

I mean:

irqhandler()
{
spin_lock() //without irqsave
spin_unlock()
}

Non-irq context which is calling this handler:
irqsave();
irqhandler();
irqrestore();

Anyway, if it is called in IRQ context, it is redundant to do irqsave.
