    That change is:

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

    type &= IRQ_TYPE_SENSE_MASK;
    - 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?
