SubjectRe: [PATCH V2 1/3] Revert "ACPI,PCI,IRQ: reduce static IRQ array size to 16"
Hi Sinan,

I have to apologize because I haven't followed all the discussion and
now I'm trying to figure it out from the patches and changelogs. But
I guess that's not all bad, because future interested folks *should*
be able to figure things out from that :)

Which API are you thinking about here? pcibios_penalize_isa_irq() is
called by ACPI and PNP, which should both be after ACPI is started.

My guess is you're thinking about acpi_penalize_sci_irq() (added back
later in this series), which is called here, which is definitely
before ACPI objects are available:

setup_arch
acpi_boot_init
acpi_process_madt
acpi_parse_madt_ioapic_entries
acpi_table_parse_madt
acpi_parse_int_src_ovr
acpi_sci_ioapic_setup
acpi_penalize_sci_irq # <---

IIRC, this all started because we needed more than 256 IRQs, but we
didn't know how to size a static table to be large enough without
being wasteful.

Prior to 5c5087a55390, we tracked penalties for IRQs 0-255. After it,
we only tracked penalties for IRQs 0-15. I think this patch basically
makes it so we track 0-255 again.

*This* patch only increases the range for pcibios_penalize_isa_irq()
(and command-line hints, but hopefully nobody cares about those). A
subsequent patch increases it for SCI as well.

The name "ACPI_MAX_IRQS" is now slightly misleading (because we do
support more than 256 IRQs) and the 256 value is sort of an
unjustified magic number. 16 is explainable as the number of ISA
IRQs, but I don't know what 256 is based on (other than historical
practice, of course). ACPI device IRQs can be much larger, and I
think the SCI IRQ can be, too (the FADT SCI_INT field is 16 bits).

Can you tie this back to the specific problem on the broken machine
somehow? Do we need a penalty for an IRQ in the 16-255 range?

In a subsequent patch, I see something about the IRQ type not being
updated at the right time, but I can't quite connect the dots.

To be clear, I'm not asking for any changes in the patch; I'm just
trying to understand what's going on.
