Subject[GIT PULL] (xen) stable/irq.fairness, stable/irq.ween_of_nr_irqs for 2.6.39
Hey Linus,

This pull request is coming in a bit late b/c it utilizes a lot
of the functionality provided by "genirq: Make nr_irqs runtime expandable"
(e7bcecb7b1d29b9ad5af939149a945658620ca8f) and it makes sense to have
that patchset in first.

Please pull these two branches:

git:// stable/irq.fairness stable/irq.ween_of_nr_irqs

I tried doing it in one swoop and hit an extra commit error with
"static struct cpu_evtchn_s.." b/c that particular piece of code gets removed
by the stable/irq.ween_of_nr_irqs code.

If you do it with two git pulls it works out nicely with just one conflict.
#linux-next has already hit this and Stephen is carrying a fix for that.
To make it easier to see I've put the merge and the conflict resolution in the
for-2.6.39/irq.phase.two branch for visulization.

Back to the description.

#stable/irq.fairness is based off stable/irq.cleanup (which you pulled on Monday)

.. which allows the event nr->IRQ dispatch code to go round-robin across the events.
Previously it would always start at zero causing starvation issues when there were lots
of guests running. With this patchset we go fairly across the full spectrum of events
and execute in a fair fashion the IRQ handlers that are tied in with the event channel.

#stable/irq.ween_of_nr_irqs is also based off stable/irq.cleanup

.. and it does a nice job of cleaning up the IRQ code further and collapsing a lot
functionality in common code. It also allows us now to grow dynamically
the IRQ limit by using Thomas's "genirq: Make nr_irqs runtime expandable"
functionality. Really neat!
