Actually, the draft patch I sent you did not boot on my SMP box today,
so qemu seems to have been a bit too friendly. Knowing that, issuing a
half-baked patch would have made no sense, so I finally refrained from
doing that. Since I'm now basically in love with the genirq layer (at
least for x86) compared to the utter mess that we had to endure
previously, I've decided to tackle the issue completely, and rewrite the
I-pipe interrupt flow in order to leverage it. Will post something asap.
