Hmm... the header file for that constant is included...
... but it's only defined when CONFIG_HAVE_KVM_IRQ_ROUTING, which is not the case here.
We can either make that "if" conditional on that, or we revert the commit.
The commit was meant the give user space an early indication that something is wrong.
I was only aware of the IRQ routing use case. This indicates that there are other
use cases. To err on the side of caution, I'd favor a revert as the patch is not strictly
needed -- unless someone else can provide more insight on valid values for GSI.
Paolo, do you want me to prepare a revert for the commit below?
