Subject: [PATCH] irq: Add new flag to ack level-triggered interrupts before unmasking

Several irqchip drivers require the level-triggered interrupt to be
acked before unmasking to avoid that a second interrupt is immediately
triggered. This small patch introduces a new irqchip flags that is used
to ack the IRQ line before it is unmasked.
