That change is:

@@ -61,8 +61,7 @@ int irq_set_irq_type(unsigned int irq, unsigned int type)
return -EINVAL;

- if (type != IRQ_TYPE_NONE)
- ret = __irq_set_trigger(desc, irq, type);
+ ret = __irq_set_trigger(desc, irq, type);
irq_put_desc_busunlock(desc, flags);
return ret;

So presumably irq_set_irq_type() is getting called with type ==
IRQ_TYPE_NONE. From Russell's description, presumably that would mean
the G5 sata driver isn't setting the correct type for the interrupt,
but I have *no* idea how that intersects with the change removing the
powerpc irq map.

Can you dump out /debug/powerpc/virq_mapping from both before and
after the irq_map patch is applied?
