Sure a consumer can disable the lazy feature, but that shouldn't be
required to make this work. The flag was introduced in commit
e9849777d0e2 ("genirq: Add flag to force mask in
disable_irq[_nosync]()") specifically to help devices that can't disable
the interrupt in their own device avoid a double interrupt.
