    Subject[PATCH 0/3] msi abstractions and support for altix
    Resend #5:  bug fixes

    Patch set to abstract portions of the MSI core so that it can be used on
    architectures which don't use standard interrupt controllers.

    Changes from Resend #4

    + Fix an x86_64 build problem
    + Fix an ia64 CONFIG_IA64_GENERIC build problem
    + Fix a bug in the new ia64 reserve_irq_vector()
    + Restore dev->irq if msi_ops->setup fails
    + Redo msi-altix.patch so it applies on 2.6.16-rc1

    Changes from Resend #3

    + Move external declarations of msi_apic_ops out of routines, and up earlier
    in the respective .h files.
    + Add comments to the msi_ops structure declaration

    Changes from Resend #2

    + Cleanup the ia64 platform_msi_init macro so it works on non-altix ia64

    Changes from initial version

    + Change uintXX_t to uXX
    + Change _callouts to _ops
    + Renamed the _generic routines to _apic and moved them to a new file
    + Have each msi_arch_init() routine call msi_register() with the desired
    msi ops for that platform.
    + Moved msi_address, msi_data, and related defs out of msi.h and into
    msi-apic.c, replaced by shifts/masks.
    + Rolled msi-arch-init.patch and msi-callouts.patch into a single msi-ops.patch


    1/3 msi-ops.patch
    Add an msi_arch_init() hook which can be used to perform platform
    specific setup prior to msi use.

    Define a set of msi ops to implement the platform-specific tasks:

    setup - set up plumbing to get a vector directed at a default
    cpu, and return the corresponding MSI bus address and data.
    teardown - inverse of msi_setup
    target - retarget a vector to a given cpu

    Define the routine msi_register() called from msi_arch_init()
    to set the desired ops.

    Move a bunch of apic-specific code out of the msi core .h/.c and
    into a new msi-apic.c file.

    2/3 ia64-per-platform-device-vector.patch
    For the ia64 arch, allow per-platform definitions of

    3/3 msi-altix.patch
    Altix specific callouts to implement MSI.
