Pull irq fixes from Thomas Gleixner:
"Two fixes for the interrupt subsystem:
- Make the handling of the firmware node consistent and do not free
the node after the domain has been created successfully. The core
code stores a pointer to it which can lead to a use after free or
This used to "work" because the pointer was not stored when the
initial code was written, but at some point later it was required
to store it. Of course nobody noticed that the existing users break
- Handle affinity setting on inactive interrupts correctly when
hierarchical irq domains are enabled.
When interrupts are inactive with the modern hierarchical irqdomain
design, the interrupt chips are not necessarily in a state where
affinity changes can be handled. The legacy irq chip design allowed
this because interrupts are immediately fully initialized at
allocation time. X86 has a hacky workaround for this, but other
implementations do not.
This cased malfunction on GIC-V3. Instead of playing whack a mole
to find all affected drivers, change the core code to store the
requested affinity setting and then establish it when the interrupt
is allocated, which makes the X86 hack go away"
