[PATCH] VFIO: platform: clear IRQ_NOAUTOEN when de-assigning the IRQ

The vfio platform driver currently sets the IRQ_NOAUTOEN before
doing the request_irq to properly handle the user masking. However
it does not clear it when de-assigning the IRQ. This brings issues
when loading the native driver again which may not explicitly enable
the IRQ. This problem was observed with xgbe driver.
