request_irq called too soon ? What's the limit ?

I was wondering why some test ISR I put up didn't get called. Finally I
found out that the "enable" function of the interrupt controller was not
called. So the interrupt showed in /proc/interrupts with the good name /
number but was not enabled.

At which point may I call this function ? These calls where from the
setup_arch function.
