SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/19 v2] Improve IRQ remapping abstraction in x86 core code

Finally. Usually you don't add/change code but you just move common
irq remapping pieces out of geric io-apic code and put them in once place. I
think it would be good, if you would note this in the description of your
patch.
Altogether it makes a good impression.

After browsing through the new functions in irq_remapping_modify_x86_ops() I
see that some of them test for "remap_ops" which is pointless because you don't
call irq_remapping_modify_x86_ops() if it is not the case. This also goes mostly
for irq_remapping_enabled.
The only reason when you can disable (or say irq_remapping_disable() is
called) is in the suspend path. And the remap is enabled again in via
irq_remapping_reenable() in resume. Now if this goes wrong what is next? You
don't even return an error if the callback is missing. The variable
irq_remapping_enabled does not save your ass here because some function
behave now different.

But back to the realisitic world: If something goes wrong in resume and you
can't re-enable irq remapping, the system is not really useable or is it (even
before your series)?
