It will not work, but not for the reason I mention: Adeos WILL re-enable
the IRQ at interrupt controller level after the end of this handler,
however, since the interrupt was not cleared on the peripheral side, the
peripheral will reassert the interrupt when the interrupt is unmasked at
interrupt controller level, so the CPU will enter an infinite loop
invoking the ISR.
