This patch closes the following race:

We get a PM interrupt A, mask it, set dev_priv->iir = PM_A and kick of the
work item. Scheduler isn't grumpy, so the work queue takes rps_lock,
grabs pm_iir = dev_priv->pm_iir and pm_imr = READ(PMIMR). Note that
pm_imr == pm_iir because we've just masked the interrupt we've got.

Now hw sends out PM interrupt B (not masked), we process it and mask
it.  Later on the irq handler also clears PMIIR.

Then the work item proceeds and at the end clears PMIMR. Because
(local) pm_imr == pm_iir we have
        pm_imr & ~pm_iir == 0
so all interrupts are enabled.

Hardware is still interrupt-happy, and sends out a new PM interrupt B.
PMIMR doesn't mask B (it does not mask anything), PMIIR is cleared, so
we get it and hit the WARN in the interrupt handler (because
dev_priv->pm_iir == PM_B).

That's why I've moved the
        WRITE(PMIMR, 0)
up under the protection of the rps_lock. And write an uncoditional 0
to PMIMR, because that's what we'll do anyway.

This races looks much more likely because we can arbitrarily extend
the window by grabing dev->struct mutex right after the irq handler
has processed the first PM_B interrupt.
