The nct1008/72 datasheet [1] says that reading the status register
doesn't reset interrupt until temperature is returned back into normal
state, which is what I'm witnessing.

[1] https://www.onsemi.com/pdf/datasheet/nct1008-d.pdf

Page 10 "Status Register":

"Reading the status register clears the five flags, Bit 6 to Bit 2,
provided the error conditions causing the flags to beset have gone
away. A flag bit can be reset only if the corresponding
value register contains an in-limit measurement or if the
sensor is good."

So the interrupt handler doesn't actually stop interrupt from
reoccurring and the whole KMSG is instantly spammed with:

...
[ 217.484034] lm90 0-004c: temp2 out of range, please check!
[ 217.484569] lm90 0-004c: temp2 out of range, please check!
[ 217.485006] systemd-journald[179]: /dev/kmsg buffer overrun, some
messages lost.
[ 217.485109] lm90 0-004c: temp2 out of range, please check!

[ 217.486874] systemd-journald[179]: /dev/kmsg buffer overrun, ...

It's interesting that the very first version of the nct1008-support
patch used edge-triggered interrupt flags [2].

Limiting the interrupt rate could be an alternative solution.

What do you think about something like this:
