That is my understanding as well.

Running the primary handler in hardirq context is bad, because it
invokes meson_mmc_request_done() at the very end. And here:
- mmc_complete_cmd() -> complete_all()
There is a lockdep_assert_RT_in_threaded_ctx() which should trigger.

- led_trigger_event() -> led_trigger_event()
This should trigger a might_sleep() warning somewhere.

So removing IRQF_ONESHOT is okay but it should additionally disable the
IRQ source in meson_mmc_irq() and re-enable back in
meson_mmc_irq_thread(). Otherwise the IRQ remains asserted and may fire
multiple times before the thread has a chance to run.
