It seems it was here

Usually interrupt handlers are created, attached and configured during
system initialization, while global interrupts are still disabled. On
most hardware it will also be necessary to call cyg_interrupt_unmask,
since the sensible default for interrupt masking is to ignore any
interrupts for which no handler is installed.

Look around
% grep cyg_drv_interrupt_unmask $ECOS_REPOSITORY/devs

So, in the most cases you do not need to enable interrupts "by hands" if
you use eCos kernel, otherwise, take a look on these eCos tests (== eCos
