Oh, I see what you mean.  I'm not sure that level of optimisation is
worth it, the overhead of taking an interrupt in the first place is
going to dwarf the optimisation and the indentation probably won't help
writing clear messages.

The interrupt core will eventually take care of it if the interrupt is
left screaming with nothing handling it (and provide diagnostics).  I
would *hope* that this is only happening for unmasked interrupt sources
we explicitly unmask anyway, we really don't want interrupts on FIFO
level changes.
