You write this:

> -		l1_writel(0xffffffff, cpu->map_base + reg_mask_set(intc, i));
> -		cpu->mask_cache[i] = 0xffffffff;

>  	}

And I'm saying that this is strictly equivalent to:

 	for (i = 0; i < n_words; i++) {
		l1_writel(~intc->irq_fwd_mask[i],
			  cpu->map_base + reg_mask_set(intc, i));
		cpu->mask_cache[i] = ~intc->irq_fwd_mask[i];
 	}

without this 0xffffffff that does exactly nothing (I'm pretty sure the
compiler drops it anyway).
