-Rob Herring has irqchip changes:

[…] This is the initial infrastructure and conversion
of the GIC and VIC to use it. Several people are waiting for the irqchip
infrastructure to go in in order to convert other irqchip code over.

I’ve left “static asmlinkage” in on the irq handlers. There’s been no
more discussion, so I think we are in agreement. If asmlinkage defines
the procedure call convention for assembly calls, then it still makes
sense to have it on a static function called thru a function pointer.
