If there is another violation happened before previous violation is
fully handled, nested interrupt would happen.

Let's me take an example:
vio A happen
enter A ISR
...		vio B happen
finish A ISR	enter B ISR
		...
		finish B ISR

We mask all module's irq to avoid nested interrupt.

Does it mean that remove function would be called only if probe function
is returned successfully?
Is there any chance this function would be called directly?
