It only happens on multi-platform kernels, because of the following definition

#if defined(MACH_ATARI_ONLY)
        /* block out HSYNC = ipl 2 on the atari */
#define ALLOWINT        (~0x500)
        /* portable version */
#define ALLOWINT        (~0x700)
#endif /* machine compilation types */

On an Atari-only kernel, flags is either 0x00c02204 or 0x00c02214.
Hence "flags & ~ALLOWINT" is "flags & 0x500" is always zero.

On a multi-platform kernel, flags is one of 0x00c02004, 0x00c02014,
0x00c02204, or 0x00c02214.
Hence "flags & ~ALLOWINT" is "flags & 0x700" is sometimes non-zero,
triggering the warning.

Anyone who sees a solution that doesn't involve adding a variable to hold

We're already having a check for Q40 in arch_local_irq_enable()
(in multi-platfom kernels only).
