bah! That mutt thing is too fast.

The raw conversation looks sane and could go upstream. This other chunk:

|+#if defined(CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT_FULL) && defined(CONFIG_KVM_MPIC)
|+/* Limit the number of vcpus due to in-kernel mpic concurrency */
|+#define KVM_MAX_VCPUS 4
|+#define KVM_MAX_VCORES 4

should be a separate patch. Please repost including ppc ml.

Thanks! Will send a patchset separating these 2 functional changes - the openpic raw_spinlock for upstream ppc (since it doesn't bring any changes anyway), and the MAX_VCPUS limitation for the RT tree.

This remains of my multiple-MSI patch which someone other posted a while
ago. What happend to it?

I'm not aware of this patch, could you give more details, please?
