RE: [PATCH] fix PCI interrupt setting for ia64

As a matter of fact, I don't have special reason to leave RTEs unmasked in
iosapic_register_intr(), iosapic_register_platform_intr(),
I think it is better that interrupts are unmasked by individual device
drivers, but
there are some exceptions. For example, PMI and INIT don't need device
So I think more investigation is needed about them.
