The point of returning IRQ_NONE is to indicate to the interrupt layer that
the interrupt you received was not processed by any interrupt handler, and
therefore to provide a way of preventing the system being brought to a halt
though a stuck interrupt line.

So, if you do process an interrupt, you should always return IRQ_HANDLED
even if you couldn't complete its processing (eg, because you've serviced
it 100 times.)
