This would be generally useful for embedded systems, especially where
the interrupt concerned is a wake source. It allows drivers to avoid
spurious interrupts from noisy sources so if the hardware supports it
the driver can avoid having to explicitly wait for the signal to become
stable and software has to cope with fewer events. We've lived without
it for quite some time, though.
