irqdomain: Introduce new interfaces to support hierarchy irqdomains
We plan to use hierarchy irqdomain to suppport CPU vector assignment, interrupt remapping controller, IO-APIC controller, MSI interrupt and hypertransport interrupt etc on x86 platforms. So extend irqdomain interfaces to support hierarchy irqdomain. There are already many clients of current irqdomain interfaces. To minimize the changes, we choose to introduce new version 2 interfaces to support hierarchy instead of extending existing irqdomain interfaces. According to Thomas's suggestion, the most important design decision is to build hierarchy struct irq_data to support hierarchy irqdomain, so hierarchy irqdomain related data could be saved in struct irq_data. With support of hierarchy irq_data, we could also support stacked irq_chips. This is most useful in case of set_affinity(). The new hierarchy irqdomain introduces following interfaces: 1) irq_domain_alloc_irqs()/irq_domain_free_irqs(): allocate/release IRQ and related resources. 2) __irq_domain_alloc_irqs(): a special version to support legacy IRQs. 3) irq_domain_activate_irq()/irq_domain_deactivate_irq(): program interrupt controllers to activate/deactivate interrupt. There are also several help functions to ease irqdomain implemenations: 1) irq_domain_get_irq_data(): get irq_data associated with a specific irqdomain. 2) irq_domain_set_hwirq_and_chip(): save irqdomain specific data into irq_data. 3) irq_domain_alloc_irqs_parent()/irq_domain_free_irqs_parent(): invoke parent irqdomain's alloc/free callbacks. We also changed irq_startup()/irq_shutdown() to invoke irq_domain_activate_irq()/irq_domain_deactivate_irq() to program interrupt controller when start/stop interrupts.
