OK. will do the same. Thanks for suggesting.

Hmm.. My motivation for IRQ_NONE was because this specific handler does
not handle the interrupt. Now, from this discussion, I understand that I
should rather use IRQ_HANDLED since the event is indeed handled (just
not here).

Thank you for correcting my understanding. Will update in my next rev
(once we solve the following discussion)..

True.

I think I understand your concern - I request Tony to comment about
this. I mean, I can try and hook things like uart in other drivers
(like https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/4759171/ ), but w.r.t overall
generic usage guideline wise, I would prefer Tony to comment.
