I don't see that PPC is converted to genirq, that new API. And I'm not sure (while not being a PPC expert) if it ever will be, specifically as PowerPC is already on genirq and should obsolete PPC one day, right? Anyway, there is an unreleased work-in-progress patch for x86 over -rc6 by Philippe. I recently had the chance to test it and hack a bit on the SMP IO-APIC part. It seems to work fine under UP, but SMP had some issues that are identified, but still need to be addressed - thanks to genirq, now in a widely arch-independent way. Philippe, I know you are very busy, but shouldn't we make a pre-release available already, also to discuss further how to deal best with genirq on other platforms beyond x86? Jan
