    [PATCH] Initial generic hypertransport interrupt support · 8b955b0d

    This patch implements two functions ht_create_irq and ht_destroy_irq for
    use by drivers.  Several other functions are implemented as helpers for
    arch specific irq_chip handlers.
    
    The driver for the card I tested this on isn't yet ready to be merged.
    However this code is and hypertransport irqs are in use in a few other
    places in the kernel.  Not that any of this will get merged before 2.6.19
    
    Because the ipath-ht400 is slightly out of spec this code will need to be
    generalized to work there.
    
    I think all of the powerpc uses are for a plain interrupt controller in a
    chipset so support for native hypertransport devices is a little less
    interesting.
    
    However I think this is a half way decent model on how to separate arch
    specific and generic helper code, and I think this is a functional model of
    how to get the architecture dependencies out of the msi code.
