[PATCH 0/4] irqchip/gic: Deal with the active state across kexec and suspend/resume

From: Marc Zyngier
Date: Mon Nov 16 2015 - 14:13:52 EST

Now that the kernel uses EOImode==1 for the GIC, this uncovers a
number of cases where the active state is not correctly handled:

- When doing kexec, we directly call the irq_eoi() method, which may
violate ordering constraints, or leave interrupts active.
- When booting, we don't reset the active state, trusting whatever was
there before.
- When doing suspend/resume, we're not saving/restoring the active
state, which could result in lost interrupts if VMs were running at
this precise moment.

This has also uncovered a small bug in the way we restore enabled
interrupts (which could result in a fix to stable).

These patches are on top of v4.4-rc1.

Marc Zyngier (4):
arm: kexec: Deactivate in-flight interrupts
irqchip/gic: Make sure all interrupts are deactivated at boot
irqchip/gic: Clear enable bits before restoring them
irqchip/gic: Add save/restore of the active state
