I'm looking at this piece of code recently, and I have a few questions.

Interrupt resource descriptor returns gsi, right?
why you do need to do the isa-irq-to-gsi map again? is this problem
caused by an interrupt override table on this machine?
But if this is true, I don't see why
a4384df3e24579d6292a1b3b41d500349948f30b introduces this regression.

can you attach the acpidump table please?

thanks,
rui
