_disconnect() does not care as we should always succeed tearing off
things. del_* ops are void functions. On the opposite we can fail
setting up the bypass.

Effectively
a979a6aa009f ("irqbypass: do not start cons/prod when failed connect")
needs to be reverted.

I agree the kerneldoc comments in linux/irqbypass.h may be improved to
better explain the role of stop/start cbs and warn about their potential
global impact.

wrt the case above, "in __connect, add_producer finally calls
kvm_vgic_v4_set_forwarding and fails to get the 4th mapping", shouldn't
we succeed in that case?

Thanks

Eric
