Ok. I´ve found it. The MSI interrupt type uses its end() handler to acknowledge the interrupt using ack_APIC_irq() (drivers/pci/msi.c). Xenomai uses the ack() handler to expedite the acknowledgement of an IRQ. In case of MSI, ack() is a NOP.

The main problem is that Xenomai redefines ack_APIC_irq() calls (they become NOPs, as defined in apic.h). Maybe the ISRs used so far never issued ack_APIC_irq() themselves, and used always the IO-APIC (which contains the correct __ack_APIC_irq() call) ?

I feel a bit awkward about changing msi.c .

Any opinions about how to change Xenomai / Linux ?
