Subject[PATCH v3] irq/core: synchronize irq_thread startup
From: Thomas Pfaff <tpfaff@pcs.com>

While running
"while /bin/true; do setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none;
setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart 16550A; done"
on a kernel with threaded irqs, setserial is hung after some calls.

setserial opens the device, this will install an irq handler if the uart is
not none, followed by TIOCGSERIAL and TIOCSSERIAL ioctls.
Then the device is closed. On close, synchronize_irq() is called by
serial_core.

If the close comes too fast, the irq_thread does not really start,
it is terminated immediately without going into irq_thread().
But an interrupt might already been handled by
irq_default_primary_handler(), going to __irq_wake_thread() and
incrementing threads_active.
If this happens, synchronize_irq() will hang forever, because the
irq_thread is already dead, and threads_active will never be decremented.

The fix is to make sure that the irq_thread is really started
during __setup_irq().
