SubjectRe: [PATCH 10/14] irqchip/mips-gic: Add a IPI hierarchy domain

It's not identical. It's a subset of the GIC domain and it has
different semantics than the IPI domain.

We do that better now as we really don't want to start over when it
turns out that the DT property imposes other issues on it.

int ipi_get_hw_irq(int irq)
{
struct irq_data *d = irq_get_irq_data(irq);
return d ? irqd_to_hwirq(d);
}

Hmm?

Thanks,
