[BUG] irq_dispose_mapping after irq request failure

From: Baruch Siach

Hi lkml,

The drivers/edac/mpc85xx_edac.c driver contains the following (abbreviated)
code snippet it its .probe:

res = devm_request_irq(&op->dev, pdata->irq,
mpc85xx_pci_isr, IRQF_DISABLED,
"[EDAC] PCI err", pci);
if (res < 0) {
goto err2;

Now, since the requested irq is already in use, and IRQF_SHARED is not set,
devm_request_irq errors() out, which is OK. Less OK is the
irq_dispose_mapping() call, which gives me this:

EDAC PCI1: Giving out device to module 'MPC85xx_edac' controller 'mpc85xx_pci_err': DEV 'ffe0a000.pcie' (INTERRUPT)
genirq: Flags mismatch irq 16. 00000020 ([EDAC] PCI err) vs. 00000020 ([EDAC] PCI err)
mpc85xx_pci_err_probe: Unable to requiest irq 16 for MPC85xx PCI err
remove_proc_entry: removing non-empty directory 'irq/16', leaking at least '[EDAC] PCI err'

So, is irq_dispose_mapping() the right thing to do when irq request fails?

A simple grep shows that irq_dispose_mapping() calls are mostly limited to
powerpc code. Is there a reason for that?
