Yes, the 0-day bot already complained about this.  The short answer is
that Ulf kindly volunteered to manually fix up my patch series where I
had introduced a variable in the wrong patch.  ...but in doing so he
introduced a small bug.

It should be very easy to fix.  Just need to change irqflags from
"unsigned int" to "unsigned long".
