Yes, should be.

What do you mean: there is a relation between event rings
msix_entries.vectors. and we need to presents this relationships in the
msix interrupt handler?

So does the following mode you like?

request_irq(hcd->msix_entries[i].vector, msix_irq_handler, 0, "",

Or another way to do it if we know which ring will handle the irq, like:

irqreturn_t xhci_msi_irq(int irq, struct usb_hcd *hcd)

switch (irq2ring(irq))
case ring0: driver_handle_ring(ring0);
case ring1: driver_handle_ring(ring1);

In fact, since there is no actual usage of multiple rings now, I have no
much idea of the relationships.

BTW, if it is possible do this change to another patch?

Uh, the key is msix vector numbers maybe changed after be freed in
suspend and re-get here. Are there examples to keep the vector number in
