 For what you would otherwise want to do in the interrupt context.

 If you want an example, then please have a look at phylib, where in the 
interrupt handler you cannot even access the interrupt status register of 
the originating device (there may be a number of them sharing the same 
line too), because in general it is impossible to access the MDIO bus from 
the interrupt context.
