Merge branch 'irq-core-for-linus' of git://
Pull irq code updates from Thomas Gleixner: "The irq department proudly presents: - Another tree wide sweep of irq infrastructure abuse. Clear winner of the trainwreck engineering contest was: #include "../../../kernel/irq/settings.h" - Tree wide update of irq_set_affinity() callbacks which miss a cpu online check when picking a single cpu out of the affinity mask. - Tree wide consolidation of interrupt statistics. - Updates to the threaded interrupt infrastructure to allow explicit wakeup of the interrupt thread and a variant of synchronize_irq() which synchronizes only the hard interrupt handler. Both are needed to replace the homebrewn thread handling in the mmc/sdhci code. - New irq chip callbacks to allow proper support for GPIO based irqs. The GPIO based interrupts need to request/release GPIO resources from request/free_irq. - A few new ARM interrupt chips. No revolutionary new hardware, just differently wreckaged variations of the scheme. - Small improvments, cleanups and updates all over the place" I was hoping that that trainwreck engineering contest was a April Fools' joke. But no. * 'irq-core-for-linus' of git:// (68 commits) irqchip: sun7i/sun6i: Disable NMI before registering the handler ARM: sun7i/sun6i: dts: Fix IRQ number for sun6i NMI controller ARM: sun7i/sun6i: irqchip: Update the documentation ARM: sun7i/sun6i: dts: Add NMI irqchip support ARM: sun7i/sun6i: irqchip: Add irqchip driver for NMI controller genirq: Export symbol no_action() arm: omap: Fix typo in ams-delta-fiq.c m68k: atari: Fix the last kernel_stat.h fallout irqchip: sun4i: Simplify sun4i_irq_ack irqchip: sun4i: Use handle_fasteoi_irq for all interrupts genirq: procfs: Make smp_affinity values go+r softirq: Add linux/irq.h to make it compile again m68k: amiga: Add linux/irq.h to make it compile again irqchip: sun4i: Don't ack IRQs > 0, fix acking of IRQ 0 irqchip: sun4i: Fix a comment about mask register initialization irqchip: sun4i: Fix irq 0 not working genirq: Add a new IRQCHIP_EOI_THREADED flag genirq: Document IRQCHIP_ONESHOT_SAFE flag ARM: sunxi: dt: Convert to the new irq controller compatibles irqchip: sunxi: Change compatibles ...
