[PATCH] assign_irq_vector() should not panic

Hi,

Current assign_irq_vector() will panic if interrupt vectors are running
out. But I think how to handle the case of lack of interrupt vectors
should be decided by the caller of this function. For example, some
PCI devices can raise the interrupt signal via both MSI and I/O
APIC. So even if the driver for these device fails to allocate a
vector for MSI, the driver still has a chance to use I/O APIC based
interrupt. But currently there is no chance for these driver to use
I/O APIC based interrupt because kernel will panic when
assign_irq_vector() fails to allocate interrupt vector for MSI.

The following patch changes assign_irq_vector() for ia64 to return
negative value on error instead of panic.
