Actually, we could probably remove the setting of GINTSTS_PRTINT
completely. The docs I have say that the GINTSTS_PRTINT is read only
and that:

...so writing PRTINT is probably useless, but John can confirm.

...if it wasn't useless to clear PRTINT it would depend on how things
were implemented. One (purely speculative) case where my patch would
be more correct:

1. Interrupt source 1 in HPRT fires. PRTINT is latched to 1 and
interrupt handler is called.
2. Read HPRT
3. Interrupt source 2 in HPRT fires. PRTINT is already 1, so no new
interrupt handler called.
4. Clear PRTINT
5. Handle interrupt source 1

...now we'll never get an interrupt for interrupt source 2.


In any case, I think this particular change is a no-op, but other
changes in this patch (probably) aren't.

Patch #2 should definitely _not_ go into the RC. It is a relatively
intrusive patch, fixes no known issues, and has only had light
testing. I haven't even landed this change locally in ChromeOS since
it's a bit scary to me I haven't found any good use for it. I do keep
testing with it to see if it fixes any of my issues, though. ;)


I'd like to see patch #1 should go into the RC since it fixes problems
that are really easy to reproduce. IMHO It's also neither big nor
scary. FWIW it's already landed in the ChromeOS tree as of Oct 20th
(almost a month). While it hasn't hit stable channel yet, it's been
on beta channel and nobody has discovered any issues with it yet.


Thanks! :)
