Would just making a device tree change fix this?  AKA for the pin, do:

  samsung,pin-function = <0xf>;

I have some vague recollection that I set interrupts to pin-function
"0" by default for some reason (assuming they would go to 0xf when
interrupts were enabled).  ...but I can't for the life of me remember
if it was a good reason or just seemed like the right thing to do.
