It fixes the original implementation of the driver basically. It's just
a classic posted-write fix. The write to clear the pending interrupt is
asynchronous, so you can get spurrious ones if you return from the
handler before it has percolated to the HW.

I assume it's just more visible on the 2600 because of the cores are
significantly faster but the IO bus is still as dumb.

Ryan: You could always add a Fixed-by: tag that specifies the commit
that added the initial driver...
