I am a bit confused what you mean by "lateeoi" handling is becoming active. Can you clarify?

See above: the next call of the handler should be allowed only after
xen_irq_lateeoi() for the IRQ has been called.

If the handler is being called earlier we have the race resulting
in the WARN() splats.

I feel it is dislike to understand race with just words. Can you provide

Sorry I meant difficult rather than dislike.
