All you have to do is register an irq handler. See the book by Rubini, Corbet, Kroah-Hartman, Device Drivers for Linux, 3rd ed. If you're writing a PCI driver you need to be familiar with the Linux driver framework.

This sounds a bit like homework....

Please tell us a bit more about what kind of driver you are writing and what kind of interrupts you need to handle. eg--is it possible that you really need to handle events?
