My intent was to only issue the message for unexpectedly-asserted 
interrupts that aren't among the ones already known to happen despite 
being disabled -- basically just indicating that a new bit might need to 
be added to the spurious-interrupt mask added in the second patch.  (I 
included the orig_sts element in case there's any useful debugging 
information to be gleaned from what other interrupts got asserted along 
with it, which would also include FRAME, CAPTURE, and any others 
explicitly cleared.)

And incidentally, in the handful of instances I captured in which this 
problem arose, it seemed to be "sticky" in that it continued occurring 
on every frame until the device was reset, so it seems like it would be 
likely to lead to a fair amount of log spam for a condition where it's 
basically just "we're ignoring known misbehavior" and there's not much 
else to do about it.
