Mark the IIO sysfs-trigger irq_work with IRQ_WORK_HARD_IRQ to ensure that
it is always executed in hard interrupt context, even with PREEMPT_RT=y.

The IIO sysfs-trigger irq_work needs to run in hard interrupt context since
it will end up calling generic_handle_irq() which has the requirement to
run in hard interrupt context.

Note that the IRQ_WORK_HARD_IRQ flag, while it exists, does not seem to do
anything in the mainline kernel yet. It does have an effect in the RT
patchset though and presumably this is sooner or later going to be added to
mainline as well.
