No. But when msic_count > 1, we have multiple interrupts.

Assume that an XHCI controller has two rings, and that each one gets its
own MSI-X interrupt. How should the driver decide which of the rings
needs to be handled?

irqreturn_t xhci_msix_irq(struct usb_hcd *hcd)
{
struct xhci_hcd *xhci = hcd_to_xhci(hcd);
if (...)
handle(xhci->ring[0]);
else
handle(xhci->ring[1]);
}
I.e., what should go into the if()?

Regards,
Clemens
