SubjectRe: [PATCH] mfd: cpcap: Fix interrupt regression with regmap clear_ack

> With commit 3a6f0fb7b8eb ("regmap: irq: Add support to clear ack
> registers"), the cpcap interrupts are no longer getting acked properly
> leading to a very unresponsive device with CPUs fully loaded spinning
> in the threaded IRQ handlers.
> To me it looks like the clear_ack commit above actually fixed a long
> standing bug in regmap_irq_thread() where we unconditionally acked the
> interrupts earlier without considering ack_invert. And the issue with
> cpcap started happening as we now also consider ack_invert.
> Tim Harvey <> tried to fix this issue earlier with
> "[PATCH v2] regmap: irq: fix ack-invert", but the reading of the ack
> register was considered unnecessary for just ack_invert, and we did not
