Sorry, I was thinking about a general case not the shutdown path. If we open
this API and have device drivers call it from arbitrary places; then we could
be opening a new can of worms that show up during device driver removal.

If you feel confident (I'm not), I can pursue this approach too.

The problem I had here is that =the last argument is the context pointer when I
call devm_free_irq().

If I don't pass the same context I used during IRQ registration, then the IRQ
free API fails. That's why, I needed to keep the event pointer around until the
IRQ free is called.
