irq: Add new IRQ flag IRQF_NO_SUSPEND

A small number of users of IRQF_TIMER are using it for the implied no
suspend behaviour on interrupts which are not timer interrupts.

Therefore add a new IRQF_NO_SUSPEND flag, rename IRQF_TIMER to
__IRQF_TIMER and redefine IRQF_TIMER in terms of these new flags.
