request_percpu_irq: allocate a percpu interrupt line

NAME

request_percpu_irq - allocate a percpu interrupt line

SYNOPSIS

int request_percpu_irq(unsigned int irq, irq_handler_t handler, const char devname, void __percpu dev_id);

ARGUMENTS

irq

Interrupt line to allocate

handler

Function to be called when the IRQ occurs.

devname

An ascii name for the claiming device

dev_id

A percpu cookie passed back to the handler function

DESCRIPTION

This call allocates interrupt resources and enables the interrupt on the local CPU. If the interrupt is supposed to be enabled on other CPUs, it has to be done on each CPU using enable_percpu_irq.

Dev_id must be globally unique. It is a per-cpu variable, and the handler gets called with the interrupted CPU's instance of that variable.
