Unfortunately, the PLIC implementation is the same across existing
boards (except T-HEAD) so this issue is there on all existing boards.

I double checked the upcoming RISC-V AIA specification and this
problem is not there in RISC-V AIA because the interrupt claim/completion
is different.
(Refer, https://github.com/riscv/riscv-aia/releases/download/0.2-draft.27/riscv-interrupts-027.pdf)

I plan to send-out RFC PATCH for AIA soon so that we get early
feedback from everyone on LKML.
