irqresponse here means 'is pp->irqctl valid', and that's why the
control line write is guarded by it. If PPWCTLONIRQ hasn't been
called, no write is needed.
The irqc atomic variable is a count of how many interrupts have
occurred since the last call to PPCLRIRQ.
If you aren't doing either of those things, you don't need the
atomic_inc or the irqresponse/write_control bit.
