Could someone name the module of the interrupt handler running on the Gumstix that clears the interrupt and a way to deactivate it?
 
I would prefer it for some applications.

Yeah - as Pascal suggested, setting GFER or GRER causes an interrupt
to fire and the interrupt handler clears the interrupt before your
code even gets a chance.

I suggest you consider using something like gpio-event:
<http://docswiki.gumstix.com/GPIO_event >
which install the correct interrupt handlers to deal with the events.
