Hi Vineet,

For Meta this is done in secondary_start_kernel in
arch/metag/kernel/smp.c (see
https://github.com/jahogan/metag-linux/blob/metag-core/arch/metag/kernel/smp.c#L276).
It uses tbi_startup_interrupt which is also called by the irq_startup
callback for the root irq_chip.

For Meta we could probably do something similar if we moved it's root
irq_startup irq_chip callback code into irq_enable or irq_unmask.

Cheers
James
