Subject[PATCH v9 00/16] arm: KGDB NMI/FIQ support
This patchset makes it possible to use kgdb's NMI infrastructure on ARM

The patches are seperated into three distinct groups:

1. arm specific changes; these provide multi-platform support for FIQ
(including raising an IPI using FIQ to ensure effective SMP support)
and extend ARM KGDB support to use the features provided.

2. irqchip changes; updates to the gic and vic drivers to provide
support for routing certain interrupt sources to FIQ.

3. serial changes; driver support to allow the UART interrupt to be
routed to FIQ. The already mainlined kgdb NMI infrastructure (mostly
found in drivers/tty/serial/kgdb_nmi.c) will re-route the kgdb
console UART's interrupt signal from IRQ to FIQ. Naturally the UART
will no longer function normally and will instead be managed by kgdb
using the polled I/O functions. Any character delivered to the UART
causes the kgdb handler function to be called.

Tested on qemu (versatile), STiH416 (B2020 board) and Freescale i.MX6
quad (wandboard).

Changes since v8:

- Significant rework to separate the FIQ exception handler from kgdb.
This allows other features typically implemented using NMI on x86
to reuse the same exception handling code (Russell King)
- Reunited arch/arm and driver code into a single patch series again.
- Added support for raising IPIs using FIQ (makes kgdb quiesce must
more robust).
- Introduced a workaround for GICv1 devices to avoid FIQs being
spuriously handled as IRQs.

Changes since v7:

- Introduced ack_fiq() to complement eoi_fiq(). Without this it is
not possible to meet the GIC specification (previous versions worked
when tested but are unpredictable according to the specification).
ack_fiq() also makes is possible for drivers for devices with multiple
interrupt lines to discover the interrupt source correctly.

Changes since v6:

- Corrected off-by-one comparison in has_fiq() (Nicolas Pitre)
- Rewrote the FIQ stack initialization (Nicolas Pitre). This fixes a
serious data corruption bug due to bad stack mismanagement.
- Introduced __fiq_abt to ensure lr_abt and spsr_abt are saved and
restored if we fast-interrupt an abort (Russell King).
- Significantly improved the commenting of the exception handlers.
- Added a call to trace_hardirqs_on() if we clear the I bit as we
exit the exception handler.

Changes since v5:

- Separated anything not strictly impacting arch/arm.
- Fixed a spurious add/remove of code within the series (there was
broken code in intermediate patches)
