Subject[PATCH 0/2] sc16is7xx interrupt fixes
The interrupt handling of the sc16is7xx driver is broken in a number of ways,
as observed by multiple Raspberry Pi users. The attached patches attempt to
address its failings, with apparent success.

The first is a workaround for a side-effect of the switch away from using a
thread IRQ, a change which has necessitated using what is actually a
level-triggered interrupt as if it were edge-triggered. Doing so is fraught
with potential race conditions, but the patch makes them much less likely.

The second is a workaround for a bug in the design of the SC16IS752 which
requires mutual exclusion between the interrupt handler and access to the
Enhanced Features Register.

sc16is7xx: Fix for multi-channel stall
sc16is7xx: Fix for "Unexpected interrupt: 8"
