IIRC, Grant has a patch cued up that enables IRQ_DOMAIN for all of MIPS.

Indeed, I now see it in linux-next.  I will remove this one.

          The Cavium Octeon processor is a highly integrated chip containing
          many ethernet hardware widgets for networking tasks. The processor

I think the domain code will set these.

It is my understanding that the domain code only does this for:

o irq_domain_add_legacy()

o irq_create_direct_mapping()

o irq_create_mapping()

We use none of those.  So I do it here.

If there is a better way, I am open to suggestions.

irq_create_mapping is called by irq_create_of_mapping() which is
in turn called by irq_of_parse_and-map().  irq_domain always
manages the hwirq and domain values.  Driver code cannot manipulate
them manually.

I really must be missing something.


1) I must have a mapping between hwirq and irq that I control so that non-OF code using the OCTEON_IRQ_* constants continues to work.

2) irq_create_mapping() will allocate a random irq value if none is already assigned to the hwirq.

Therefore: To avoid having random irq values assigned, I must manually assign them.
