Subject: megaraid_sas: disable interrupt_mask before enabling hardware

commit c2ced1719a1b903350955a511e1666e6d05a7f5b upstream.

Update driver "mask_interrupts" before enable/disable hardware interrupt
in order to avoid missing interrupts because of "mask_interrupts" still
set to 1 and hardware interrupts are enabled.
