[PATCH v2] PCI: dra7xx: mark dra7xx_pcie_msi irq as IRQF_NO_THREAD

From: Grygorii Strashko
Date: Fri Nov 20 2015 - 08:59:47 EST

On -RT, TI DRA7 PCIe driver always produces below backtrace when the
first PCI interrupt is triggered:

---[ end trace 0000000000000002 ]---

This backtrace is triggered because dra7xx_pcie_msi_irq_handler()
forced to be threaded by default on -RT but, in the same time, it's
IRQ dispatcher and calls generic_handle_irq(), which leads to
handle_simple_irq() call. The handle_simple_irq() expected to be
called with IRQ disabled.

The same issue will also happen if kernel will boot with "threadirqs"
cmdline parameter (CONFIG_IRQ_FORCED_THREADING).

As discussed in [1], the current DRA7 PCIe hw configuration supports
32 interrupts, which cannot change because it's hardwired in silicon,
this is a single status read and assuming that only a few (most of the
time it will be exactly ONE) of those interrupts are pending at the
same time is pretty much a sane assumption. And recommended fix for
this issue is to request dra7xx_pcie_msi IRQ with IRQF_NO_THREAD flag.
