I have looked at the latest version of Rafael's patchset for device
functional
dependency tracking and in its current form it does not address the
issues
we see with dependencies on irqchips under ACPI boot.

The problem is that the conversion of ACPI IRQ resources to Linux IRQ
resources
for most DSDT devices occurs before the device is even added and is not
retried
when a device is re-probed after returning -EPROBE_DEFER. The call chain
in most
cases is:

acpi_init()
acpi_scan_init()
acpi_bus_scan()
acpi_bus_attach()
acpi_default_enumeration()
acpi_create_platform_device()
acpi_dev_get_resources() /* Resources are
converted here */
platform_device_register_full()
platform_device_add()
device_add()

What I would like to propose, and I would like feedback before I go down
that road,
is to handle this in a way similar to DT, meaning that instead of doing
on demand
probing of the irqchip devices described in the DSDT probe table I
introduce, we do
that in an init function (e.g. acpi_bus_init_irq).

Thoughts?

Thanks.
