Okay, I've pulled this in.  I need to do some compile testing before I push
it out.

What happened to this? It's not in rc1.

I kept looking at it and planning to send Linus a pull request, but I
just couldn't make myself comfortable with the state of the patch.  It
seems to me that there is too much bleeding of irq_domain state into
irq_generic_chip and it doesn't return any meaningful context to the
caller that can be used to tear it back down.

I think for the domain+generic_chip use case the API needs refining so
that it returns a container structure with both the irq_domain and the
array of generic chips.  Plus there needs to be a remove function
(there also needs to be an irq_domain remove function; I also realized
that was a missing piece when I looked at it).

I had really hoped to get fixup patches sorted out in time to still
get Linus to merge it even though it hadn't been through Linux next,
but given that I couldn't even find time to email you properly about
it, it seems I was doomed.  :-(  There weren't any other users of it
in linux-next though, so in the end I just didn't sent the pull req.

I've got a couple of fixup patches on top of your branch that I'll
send to you so you can see some of the stuff that I've done.  I'm also
not comfortable with adding flags, irq_clr & irq_set into
irq_generic_chip, but I can't quite put my finger on why.  :-/  Also,
the api for irq_setup_generic_chip_domain() is enormous.  If a context
structure is used, then it would probably be better to populate it
with the configuration so that the API isn't nearly so large.

I have several patches for kirkwood/orion which depend on this.  I'd be
lying if I said they were ready for submission, but getting this merged
would sure help move things along.  ;-)

thx,

There weren't any users in next because this was not in next for very
long. iMX had support ready to go. This (or at least some parts) is
needed to convert any existing users of generic_chip over to domains and
DT whether we add domain support directly or not.

I'm not adding those. The timing of the irq handler setup is different
with a domain, so I have to store those for later. I think this also
makes generic_chip incompatible with domains as it now exists.

This is largely an artifact of the existing generic_chip api which has
a large number of parameters, but they are spread across 2 functions.

There's a couple of simple things I could do:
- drop name and use node->name instead. If node is null then the
irq_chip will have no name, but this appears to be optional.
- make the callback fill in irq_base, reg_base, flags, irq_clr, irq_set
and private
- make the common case an inline wrapper. All but 1 user sets num_ct to
1 for example.
