Indeed.

It's not that bad. The only affected interrupt chips on x86 should be
secondary interrupt chips like the GPIO controller.

ioapic/msi/... have irq_retrigger() functionality, so it won't do the
software resend.

I just need to stare at the legacy PIC and the virt stuff.

Yes. Let me stare at the couple of weird irqchips which might get
surprised. I'll teach them not to do that :)

Thanks,
