[PATCH V4] irq: uninline generic_handle_irq, export handle_simple_irq, irq_modify_status, generic_handle_irq, irq_alloc_descs and irq_free_descs

From: Jonathan Cameron
Date: Wed May 18 2011 - 05:36:25 EST

V4: EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL instead of EXPORT_SYMBOL for generic_handle_irq.

V3: stop exporting irq_to_desc and instead take generic_handle_irq out of the header.
As suggested by Thomas Gleixner.

Patch was previously:
irq: export handle_simple_irq, irq_modify_status, irq_to_desc, irq_alloc_descs and irq_free_descs

V2: add irq_alloc_descs and irq_free_descs for dynamic pool allocation.

This is to allow their use in IIO. We have complete control of
both the irq_chip creation and requesting of irqs so would like
to be able to build as a module. That requires these exports.

Signed-off-by: Jonathan Cameron <jic23@xxxxxxxxx>

Same as before except for EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL instead of EXPORT_SYMBOL.
Sorry about that all; more coffee needed I think.

Hi Thomas,

Looking a bit more at possible locations it is clear that CONFIG_GENERIC_HARDIRQS
only exists as an ifdef in irqdesc.c so I guess that is the least intrusive place
to move this to.

Lots stacked behind this, so thought I'd keep the ball rolling rather than
waiting for your reply to my question of where best to put generic_handle_irq.
