Apparently vim and me rushing through the email [did not format the patch]
were the culprit and I only caught it after sending an email

I agree to the point that still the startup is not as synchronous
to shutdown however, enable_pirq is still invoked during irq_startup
for xen specific code and I was trying to reuse the code path to fix
within xen. Basically borrowing from what this commit [commit 020db9d3]
changed. Not sure if this could have broken under any other environment
though :(

But anyways I think the patch you suggested is much more clean and

In my understanding, it may not be the right thing as syscore stuff runs
with one cpu online and disabled interrupts. Also I did try it in the past
and failed horribly unless there is any smarter way of doing it.
It should correctly be done in suspend/resume devices as are other device

I did test the patch you suggested and it works.
I haven't done large scale testing but it looks like it may just work fine.
I will send out an updated patch for shutdown/startup of pirq after I do some
more testing and will drop patches related to shutdown/startup of pirqs from
the original series.
