No, IRQ_NONE doesn't prevent anything unless we trigger the spurious IRQ
detector (1000 IRQs / second iirc). In that case, the handler ends up being
invoked off the back of a timer tick last time I looked.
My concern is that the source of the interrupt isn't handled at all in
the case above. Sure, we clear the FSR, but we haven't actually done
anything to stop the fault occuring again. It would be like dealing with
a page fault from userspace by simply returning back to the application
without actually updating the page tables.
