Merge branch 'irq-urgent-for-linus' of git://
Pull irq fixes from Thomas Gleixner: "This udpate delivers: - A fix for dynamic interrupt allocation on x86 which is required to exclude the GSI interrupts from the dynamic allocatable range. This was detected with the newfangled tablet SoCs which have GPIOs and therefor allocate a range of interrupts. The MSI allocations already excluded the GSI range, so we never noticed before. - The last missing set_irq_affinity() repair, which was delayed due to testing issues - A few bug fixes for the armada SoC interrupt controller - A memory allocation fix for the TI crossbar interrupt controller - A trivial kernel-doc warning fix" * 'irq-urgent-for-linus' of git:// irqchip: irq-crossbar: Not allocating enough memory irqchip: armanda: Sanitize set_irq_affinity() genirq: x86: Ensure that dynamic irq allocation does not conflict linux/interrupt.h: fix new kernel-doc warnings irqchip: armada-370-xp: Fix releasing of MSIs irqchip: armada-370-xp: implement the ->check_device() msi_chip operation irqchip: armada-370-xp: fix invalid cast of signed value into unsigned variable
