Hello.

That's why in my example I made GENERIC_HARDIRQS_NO__DO_IRQ config
default to 'n' and selected by a irq chip that doens't use __do_IRQ()
anymore, well I think...

You can use both irq_cpu and i8259 same time. :)

What's wrong with 8259 I wonder? It's happily converted to genirq by other arches...
