You're saying IRQ0 shouldn't be returned (by the ACPI code) -- from this fragment
we can see that it may be returned...

Well, "hope dies last"... :-)

I didn't. Linux expects the vIRQs (I called them Linux IRQs). In the 2.6.1x time frame
those corresponded 1:1 on Alchemy. Also, there's 8259 which is always mapped at vIRQ0 (or
the legacy drivers won't work).

Well, request_irq() happilly takes vIRQ0. Moreover, there are 8253 drivers in e.g. the arch/x86/
(PPC and MIPS too) which do use vIRQ0.

You better ask Linus... ;-)

Well, actually that Linus' quote predates drivers/irqchip/, so I must confess this
argument was wrong... :-)

There is other IRQ0 issue which is very old already...
