I've added this comment in previous revision's discussion, but i'll copy 
it here as well.

Does the user of this API even cares about these details? I would think 
that it would be easier to just mandate calling this function at the end 
of each interrupt callback, regardless of which interrupt mode is used.

IMO internal details (about no-ops and such) are better explained in the 
implementation, not in the public-facing API header.
