    SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] IRQ: Maintain regs pointer globally rather than passing to IRQ handlers
    Date
    The only downside I can think of for dropping pt_regs is that now it's harder
    to just find the IRQ handler in a driver ... it's previously been all but
    guaranteed that the _only_ use of that type is the IRQ logic. The upsides
    surely outweigh that.

    gaak! where did that come from? I'll be surprised if removing
    that causes any problem at all.
