Subject[patch 2/3] Enable setting of IRQ-thread priorities from kernel cmdline (repost:CC to LKML)
The RT-patch originally creates all its IRQ-threads at priority 50.
Of course, this is not a usable default for many realtime systems
and therefor these priorities has to be tuneable for each RT-system.
But, currently there is no way within the kernel to adjust this to
the needs of the user. Some scripts are floating around to do this
from userspace, but for several applications the priorities should
already be set properly by the kernel itself before userland is
started.

This patch changes this by adding a kernel cmd-line option that can
handle a map of priorities.
It is based on the name of the driver that requests an interrupt, it
does NOT use the IRQ-ID to prioritize a certain IRQ thread.
This is designed this way because across several hardware-boards the
IRQ-IDs can change, but not necessarily the drivers
(interrupt handlers) name.


Remarks:
* There is a check for conflicts added, for situations where
IRQ-sharing is detected with different priorities requested
on the kernel cmd-line.
* Priorities are only set at creation time of the IRQ-thread.
* If userland overrules, it is NOT restored by this code.
* if no new kernel cmdline options are given, the kernel works
as before, and all IRQ-threads start at 50.
* No wildcards are supported on the cmdline.

See kernel/Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt for usage info.
