hm, by iterator i meant the body itself. I.e. something like:

static void __init setup_IO_APIC_irqs(void)
{
int apic, pin, notcon = 1;

apic_printk(APIC_VERBOSE, KERN_DEBUG "init IO_APIC IRQs\n");

for (apic = 0; apic < nr_ioapics; apic++)
for (pin = 0; pin < nr_ioapic_registers[apic]; pin++)
notcon = setup_ioapic_irq(apic, pin, notcon);

if (!notcon)
apic_printk(APIC_VERBOSE, " not connected.\n");
}

this looks quite a bit cleaner, doesnt it? We lose the 'idx' and 'irq'
variables and we lose the curly braces as well. The flow looks a lot
more trivial. And the new setup_ioapic_irq() function will be simpler as
well - it will only have 'idx' and 'irq' as a local variable, the rest
comes in as a parameter. It can 'return notcon' instead of 'continue'.
And it will be 2 levels of tabs aligned to the left, as an added bonus.

Hm?

Ingo
