Yep.

No, the xics does not implement a set_type() method.

Good to know, the problem here seems to be that the xics is using the
fasteoi flow handler, which under unconditionally masks the irq. Will have to
dig in the genirq stuff a bit more to understand what the differences are
between -rt and mainline.

It would be really interresting to know if the eHCA exhibits the same
problem under -rt as it's the only other user of the ibmebus.
Unfortunately I don't have the hardware to test.

Thanks,

Sebastien.
