Subject: [PATCH] irq: Guard handle_bad_irq log messages

An interrupt storm on a bad interrupt will cause the kernel
log to be clogged.

[   60.089234] ->handle_irq():  ffffffffbe2f803f,
[   60.090455] 0xffffffffbf2af380
[   60.090510] handle_bad_irq+0x0/0x2e5
[   60.090522] ->irq_data.chip(): ffffffffbf2af380,
[   60.090553]    IRQ_NOPROBE set
[   60.090584] ->handle_irq():  ffffffffbe2f803f,
[   60.090590] handle_bad_irq+0x0/0x2e5
[   60.090596] ->irq_data.chip(): ffffffffbf2af380,
[   60.090602] 0xffffffffbf2af380
[   60.090608] ->action():           (null)
[   60.090779] handle_bad_irq+0x0/0x2e5

This was seen when running an upstream kernel on Acer Chromebook R11.
The system was unstable as result.

Guard the log message with __printk_ratelimit to reduce the impact.
This won't prevent the interrupt storm from happening, but at least
the system remains stable.
