Seriously, build the interfaces once you know the consumers. Don't
build pie in the sky interfaces just because you can, because that
is what creates all the problems.

And of coruse at least for IPIs which absolutely are performance
criticical we need a standard interface (one that doesn't suck as much
as the SBI detour with the four extra context switches). But I guess
I have already given up on RISC-V because the incompetency about things
like the irq design are just so horrible that it isn't worth bothering
any more.
