This shows that a driver's irq handler was running both in hard interrupt
and process contexts with irqs enabled. The latter was done during
free_irq() call and was possible only with CONFIG_DEBUG_SHIRQ enabled.
This was fixed by another patch.

But similar problem is possible with request_irq(): any locks taken from
irq handler could be vulnerable - especially with soft interrupts. This
patch fixes it by disabling local interrupts during handler's run. (It
seems, disabling softirqs should be enough, but it needs more checking
on possible races or other special cases).
