I think I need to use this in my irq_chip.irq_unmask method.

Consider this:


CPU0 CPU1
handle_level_irq
lock
mask
handle_irq_event
unlock
.
. disable_irq
.
lock
unmask
unlock


I need to know in my .unmask method if the interrupt has been disabled.
If it has, I will not re-enable (unmask)it.

I am using it for per cpu interrupts, but I didn't want to impose that
policy on others.

Yes.

OK.

That would be good I think, especially for sparse irqs.

In the case of the CPU going offline, the .irq_cpu_offline() may need to
adjust the affinity so that the irq no longer has affinity for the
off-lined CPU.

This is something needed even for non-per-cpu interrupts. Also I would
need a way to call irq_set_affinity() while holding the desc->lock.
