Wow, been ages since the last patch to this driver has hit my mail:-)

Right, unconditionally enabling local IRQs in an ISR seems rude. BUT: 
unfortunately, it's not as easy as this. From DC390_Interrupt() 
dc390_DataOut_0() and dc390_DataIn_0() can be called, which also use 
spin_lock_irq() / spin_unlock_irq()... So, maybe adding a flags field to 
struct dc390_acb and using it on all 3 occasions would be the easiest and 
safest fix...

Thanks
