looked at -50-33 now and wonder why is mask_IO_APIC_irq() called twice
given a threaded interrupt:
__do_IRQ() calls desc->handler->ack(irq).
ack points to mask_and_ack_level_ioapic_irq(), which calls mask_IO_APIC_irq(irq).
some lines later in __do_IRQ() desc->handler->disable(irq) is called.
disable points to mask_IO_APIC_irq(), now being called a 2nd time.
I think this 2nd call isn't necessary.
Is there a difference between masking an interrupt line and disabling it?
What am I missing?
Back at 2.6.12-rc5-RT-48-16 mask_and_ack_level_ioapic_irq() also contained the mask_IO_APIC_irq(irq)
call and level interrupt-rates where fine.
Some versions later it vanished there. Why was that?
