Subject[090/205] genirq: Deal with desc->set_type() changing desc->chip
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>

commit 4673247562e39a17e09440fa1400819522ccd446 upstream.

The set_type() function can change the chip implementation when the
trigger mode changes. That might result in using an non-initialized
irq chip when called from __setup_irq() or when called via
set_irq_type() on an already enabled irq.

The set_irq_type() function should not be called on an enabled irq,
but because we forgot to put a check into it, we have a bunch of users
which grew the habit of doing that and it never blew up as the
function is serialized via desc->lock against all users of desc->chip
and they never hit the non-initialized irq chip issue.

The easy fix for the __setup_irq() issue would be to move the
irq_chip_set_defaults(desc->chip) call after the trigger setting to
make sure that a chip change is covered.

But as we have already users, which do the type setting after
request_irq(), the safe fix for now is to call irq_chip_set_defaults()
from __irq_set_trigger() when desc->set_type() changed the irq chip.

It needs a deeper analysis whether we should refuse to change the chip
on an already enabled irq, but that'd be a large scale change to fix
all the existing users. So that's neither stable nor 2.6.35 material.
