Hmm, why do you call it a tasklet if it's a work queue ? :)

Second, why do you need that change in the first place ? Does the
old mechanism have performance issues ? Or are you running into a
locking conflict somewhere ?

Making the interrupt processing deferrable looks dangerous to me.
If you need this to make things work, this usually suggests that
the logic is upside-down somewhere else.
