I have been away for a while, moving to a new house etc...

Anyway, the sonypi messages appear because of the new irq infrastructure
Linus introduced a few weeks ago. Using this infrastructure a driver can
tell if he really handled the irq or not.

The problem with the sonypi driver is that it only knows about a
limited set of events (button presses, battery events, lid events etc),
and any event not referenced in the sonypi source will give you the
backtrace you saw.

I intend to force the sonypi driver to return IRQ_HANDLED every time
he receives an event (because it does anyway print a warning message
when it happens), but this code has not reached Linus yet.
