Looks pretty good.  My last concern is the way we overload the semantics of
the functions depending upon a driver requesting the service and the interrupt
controller using these functions.  For example, a driver will request to
enable or disable one particular interrupt, while the interrupt handling functions
will need to honor the priority, as you have added.  Allowing a driver request
to affect the priority mask may not be appropriate.

Thanks for the effort understanding the problem and finding a solution that
works for you.  It appears to be "more right" than it was :-).
