SubjectRe: [PATCH 14/18] x86: Replace setup_irq() by request_irq()

Please do not copy the irrelevant parts of your boilerplate text into
individual changelogs. Changelogs should have the information which is
relevant to the patch they describe.

What's the purpose of the %s indirection here?

Also that error message is not really helpful:

request_irq() on cascade failed

Something like:

Failed to request irq 2 (cascade).

Hmm?

This is realy ugly.

unsigned long flags = IRQF_NOBALANCING | IRQF_IRQPOLL | IRQF_TIMER;

....
if (request_irq(0, timer_interrupt, flags, "timer", NULL))
....

takes the same amount of lines, but is readable.

Thanks,
