I used interruptible_sleep_on function in write 'system call' and wake_up_interruptible in the interrupt handler.
Even though the interrupt handler is called, the sleeping process does not wake up.
Why is the process not waking up even after wake_up call.

Do you know that the interrupt handler runs _after_ the process goes to sleep?  Did you remember to initialize the event variable (init_waitqueue_head())?
