Subject[PATCH v3 04/13] genirq: Add handle_strict_flow_irq() flow handler
Date
The GIC family of irqchips have been so far treated as "fasteoi"
chips. As handle_fasteoi_irq() states, this implies:

* Only a single callback will be issued to the chip: an ->eoi()
* call when the interrupt has been serviced.

However, the GICs have an operating mode (EOImode=1) which requires an
additional chip interaction during the IRQ handling. Said operating mode
already has some uses with virtualization, but could also be leveraged to
slightly optimize ONESHOT IRQs.

This extra interaction is currently hidden away in the drivers, but further
exploiting its effects (see IRQD_IRQ_FLOW_MASKED) requires lifting it from
the driver code into core code. It so happens that it fits the role of
->irq_ack(); unfortunately, the GICs require both callbacks to be strictly
paired with one another: for a given IRQ activation, there must be a single
->irq_ack() followed by a single ->irq_eoi(). No more, no less, and in that
order.

Introduce a new flow handler which guarantees said ack / eoi pairing. Note
that it is strikingly similar to handle_fasteoi_mask_irq() for now, but
will be further modified in later patches
