devm_request_threaded_irq(struct device *dev, unsigned int irq,
irq_handler_t handler, irq_handler_t thread_fn

I think you should pull down the IRQ level signal in "handler" and put
the backend progress into "thread_fn".

Could you give out your driver code?

I don't think we should use IRQCHIP_EOI_THREADED because it makes the
IRQ path complex, we need to let the driver separate their "handler" &
"thread_fn" properly.

How do you think?

It's ununderstandable, we need to find a way.

Thx for the test & the question.
