I regularly test on qemu rts7751r2d, but couldn't produce your
issue. Until I tried "ifconfig eth0 up", which causes a lock-up.
Interestingly, the 8139 irq was 112 with and without Sergey's patch,
so there must be an irq remapping missing.

I also test regularly on landisk, where 8139 Ethernet works fine.
Turns out landisk uses arch/sh/drivers/pci/fixups-landisk.c to fixup
the irq...

arch/sh/include/mach-common/mach/r2d.h has:
#define R2D_FPGA_IRQ_BASE 100
Subtracting 16 here does not help.

With this (gmail-whitespace-damaged) patch:

--- a/arch/sh/drivers/pci/fixups-rts7751r2d.c
+++ b/arch/sh/drivers/pci/fixups-rts7751r2d.c
@@ -31,9 +31,9 @@ static char lboxre2_irq_tab[] = {
int pcibios_map_platform_irq(const struct pci_dev *pdev, u8 slot, u8 pin)

+ return lboxre2_irq_tab[slot] - 16;
- return rts7751r2d_irq_tab[slot];
+ return rts7751r2d_irq_tab[slot] - 16;

int pci_fixup_pcic(struct pci_channel *chan)
it no longer crashes, but ifconfig still fails:

/ # ifconfig eth0 up
ifconfig: ioctl 0x8914 failed: Invalid argument

Note that there are more implementations of pcibios_map_platform_irq()
that do not use evt2irq(), and thus are probably broken by this patch.
