This patch have the effect of making misconfigured PPIs absolutely
obvious. I still need to wrap my head around the root cause, but here's
the findings I have so far:

- kvmtool generates a DT with the wrong trigger information (edge
instead of level) for the timer.
- with this patch applied, "cyclictest -S" reliably locks up when run in
a guest (missing a timer interrupt, goodbye CPU).
- Either fixing kvmtool or reverting that patch makes it work reliably
again.

My gut feeling is that until that patch, the failing irq_set_irq_type()
wasn't affecting the kernel's view of the trigger (it was still treated
as level). With this patch, the kernel now trusts whatever is coming
from the firmware, and the misconfiguration becomes obvious. And just
grepping through the DT files for arm and arm64 sends makes me thing
"Holly effin' crap!".

I'm not saying that we shouldn't perform this change though. But it is
quite obvious that it is going to break an awful lot of existing code
and platforms. I'm also cooking a small patch for the arch timer (which
seems to be described in DT with a fairly high level of brokenness), so
that we can mop-up most of the brain damage.

Thanks,

M.
