To be completely blunt, the fact that unmask and eoi are implemented the
same way is a clear sign that this is a bit broken.

irq_eoi is used if the irqchip tracks the IRQ life-cycle in HW, and it's
not obvious that this is the case. The fact that ack is also mapped to 
mask
just adds to my feeling...
