Subject[PATCH] iio: adc: stm32-adc: fix erroneous handling of spurious IRQs
1c6c69525b40 ("genirq: Reject bogus threaded irq requests") makes sure
that threaded IRQs either
- have IRQF_ONESHOT set
- don't have the default just return IRQ_WAKE_THREAD primary handler

This is necessary because level-triggered interrupts need to be masked,
either at device or irqchip, to avoid an interrupt storm.

For spurious interrupts, the STM32 ADC driver still does this bogus
request though:
- It doesn't set IRQF_ONESHOT
- Its primary handler just returns IRQ_WAKE_THREAD if the interrupt
is unexpected, i.e. !(status & enabled_mask)
- stm32mp151.dtsi describes the ADC interrupt as level-triggered

Fix this by setting IRQF_ONESHOT to have the irqchip mask the IRQ
until the IRQ thread has finished.

IRQF_ONESHOT also has the effect that the primary handler is no longer
forced into a thread. This makes the issue with spurious interrupts
interrupts disappear when reading the ADC on a threadirqs=1 kernel.
This used to result in following kernel error message:

iio iio:device1: Unexpected IRQ: IER=0x00000000, ISR=0x0000100e
iio iio:device1: Unexpected IRQ: IER=0x00000004, ISR=0x0000100a

But with this patch applied (or threaded IRQs disabled), this no longer
