I've been working on something similar on arm64 side, and effectively
the one thing that might be common to arm64 and intel is the interface
to set an interrupt as NMI. So I guess it would be nice to agree on the
right approach for this.

The way I did it was by introducing a new irq_state and let the irqchip
driver handle most of the work (if it supports that state):

This has not been ACKed nor NAKed. So I am just asking whether this is a
more suitable approach, and if not, is there any suggestions on how to
do this?

Thanks,
