There are a few whitespace issues (<space><tab>) amongst these patches (I think
in parts 6 & 13).  Here's the summary of the broken bits:

< +	unsigned int 	gsi_base;	/* GSI base */
< +	unsigned short 	num_rte;	/* # of RTEs on this IOSAPIC */
> +	unsigned int	gsi_base;	/* GSI base */
> +	unsigned short	num_rte;	/* # of RTEs on this IOSAPIC */

< +  		if (irq < 0)
> +		if (irq < 0)

< +#define IRQ_RSVD 		(2)
> +#define IRQ_RSVD		(2)

< + 	return vector;
> +	return vector;

I also got two build errors which broke several configurations:

tiger-up (this is arch/ia64/configs/tiger_defconfig with CONFIG_SMP deleted)

arch/ia64/kernel/irq_ia64.c: In function `parse_vector_domain':
arch/ia64/kernel/irq_ia64.c:270: error: `no_int_routing' undeclared (first use in this function)

arch/ia64/kernel/irq_ia64.c:270: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [arch/ia64/kernel/irq_ia64.o] Error 1

generic-up (arch/ia64/defconfig with CONFIG_SMP deleted)

same error as tiger-up

generic-smp (arch/ia64-defconfig)

generic-sparse (arch/ia64/configs/gensparse_defconfig)

same error as generic-smp

allnoconfig (make allnoconfig)

same error as tiger-up

Booting the arch/ia64/configs/tiger_defconfig kernel on my 4-socket Montecito tiger platform, I
get an almost immediate oops.  I don't have the full stack backtrace, but the highlights were:


I tried both with and without the new "vector=percpu" boot option (which needs to be
documented in Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt), but it dies with the same
stack trace both ways.
