Does returning IRQ_NONE actually prevent us from taking another
interrupt (despite clearing the FSR below)?  We definitely take more
interrupts on our platform despite returning IRQ_NONE, but maybe we have
something misconfigured...

I thought that returning IRQ_NONE would simply affect spurious interrupt
accounting (only disabling the interrupt if we took enough of them in
close enough succession to flag a misbehaving device).

As far as a valid use case, I can't think of one.  I just thought we
were messing up the spurious interrupt accounting.
