I think it's better to have ioctl create and return the fd. This way we
aren't tied to eventfd (though it makes a lot of sense to use it).

Also, please add a flags field and some padding so we can extend it later.

Need to lower the irq too (though irqfd only supports edge triggered
interrupts).

One day we'll have lockless injection and we'll want to drop this. I
guess if we create the fd ourselves we can make it work, but I don't see
how we can do this with eventfd.

Do we?

I think you can reuse the userspace irq source (since it's just another
way for userspace to inject an interrupt). It isn't really needed since
the irq source stuff is only needed to support level triggered interrupts.
