No worries. The IRQ subsystem is an acquired taste... ;-)

Of course, this is wrong. The perks of trying to do something at the
last minute while boarding an airplane. Don't do that.

This should of course read "plic_irq_unmask"...

... and this should be "plic_irq_mask".

Huhuh... It may be that QEMU doesn't implement the full-fat PLIC, as
the above bug should have kept the IRQ lines masked.

I've pushed out a branch with the fixed patch:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/maz/arm-platforms.git irq/plic-fasteoi

Thanks,
