    Subject[GIT PATCH 0/14] xen: events: cleanups + ween off nr_irqs
    The following series makes a few cleanups to the Xen IRQ infrastructure.
    The most important thing is that it removes the need to know about
    nr_irqs and in particular the reliance on nr_irqs being static.

    Apart from being generally a good thing this is needed because in 2.6.39
    nr_irqs will be able to grow dynamically, specifically e7bcecb7b1d2
    "genirq: Make nr_irqs runtime expandable" from tip/core/irq is targeted
    at 2.6.39.

    Dynamically growing nr_irqs also allows us to remove the workaround
    which eats into GSI space if a dynamic IRQ cannot be allocated.

    There is no ideal sequencing of this series vs e7bcecb7b1d2 (most should
    have gone in before, but the penultimate patch really needed to be
    simultaneous) so I haven't bothered to try and pull anything from tip
    into this branch -- it should all be resolved during the merge window
    and bisection won't be too broken since the "eat into GSI space"
    workaround only appears to be needed on a small number of older
    platforms (qemu being the main exception).

    I have tested:
    * Domain 0 on real h/w and under qemu
    * PV guest, including migration and passthrough of both VF and PF.
    * PVHVM guest, including migration and passthrough of both VF and

    The git pull is a branch on top of konrad/stable/irq.cleanup. However
    there is an interaction with konrad/devel/xen-pciback-0.4.driver (the
    addition of the domid parameter) so for convenience I have also produced
    an irq-pciback branch at the same location which has
    konrad/devel/xen-pciback-0.4.driver merged into this branch.

    Note that this series obsoletes an older patcho f mine "xen: events:
    mark cpu_evtchn_mask_p as __refdata" by virtue of removing the code in
