My rationale for the unsigned part was that acpi_gsi_to_irq always
assigns a positive value (>= 0) to the irq passed (as unsigned
argument). But even otherwise that shouldn't make much of difference I guess.

Also,
I had sent another change (oneline) for the file
arch/x86/xen/platform-pci-unplug.c for check_platform_magic, looks like that has not gone into
the pull request for Linus.
