Actually, looking at the code I cannot figure out why there has to be a
spinlock in the first place.

The lock is only taken in the interrupt handler which already runs in
atomic context so there is no use in making the handler protected by a
spinlock. Am I missing something here?

I think the spinlock is unnecessary and should be removed entirely.
