Subject[RFC PATCH 0/4] Provide core API for NMIs

This patch series provides a way for irqchips to define some IRQs as NMIs.

For this to be possible, the irqchip must:
- be a root irqchip
- not require bus locking
- have the NMI support flag

Once these conditions are met, interrupt lines can be requested as NMIs.
These lines must not be shared and the IRQ handling must not be threaded.
Callbacks are added to the irqchip in order to set up (clean up) the
necessary resources for NMIs before enabling (before releasing) the
corresponding interrupt line.

For reference, see the examples of the support provided by GICv3 [1] and
for the request and management of an NMI in the arm_pmu driver [2]. (These
are not on the list yet as I'd like the focus of the discussion to be on
the API for now)

This work was motivated by a discussion on Ricardo Neri's patch [3]

Patches 1 & 2 provide functions necessary to request and manage NMIs.
Patches 3 & 4 provide functions for NMI handling.





Julien Thierry (4):
genirq: Provide basic NMI management for interrupt lines
genirq: Provide NMI management for percpu_devid interrupts
genirq: Provide NMI handlers
irqdesc: Add domain handler for NMIs
