SubjectRe: sharing interrupt between PCI device

This is the system information X86_64 platform Xeon dual core processor.

I saw the pci_disable_device () it is calling pcibios_disable_device
() and this is is defined as

void pcibios_disable_device (struct pci_dev *dev)
if (pcibios_disable_irq)

In i386 platform, I could not find a definition for these calls in
x86_64 platform, i think it is using i386 platform code.
