Are you aware that again you do top posting? Please, don't do that.
It's the common rule here. Maybe you don't like it...fine...but we
live here as one single community, so please obey the rule. Alright?

OK, assuming you wanna to track last (or maybe few latest irq number
that has been shot). I think, without certain instrumention, you can't
do that. AFAIK, irq number is pushed in the kernel stack before it
hits the upper half. But it could be clobbered by another one...

I think ftrace or systemtap could help you on that matter...or if you
wanna do freestyle hacking, kprobe will help too as always.
