Yes, that's why we introduced the logic in pruss_intc_irq_domain_xlate
and pruss_intc_map triggered by irq_create_fwspec_mapping, which will
check potential conflicts with previous configured interrupts. I
understand that you do not like how it is done but I do not know how
to do it in a different way so it will cover all caveats, please see
below.

I am not sure if I understood. The allocation requirements are as
you've described: source (system event), target (host interrupt) and
priority (channel).
E.g.:
- routing system event 3 with priority (chanell) 2 to PRU core 0 will
be described as bellow: (3, 2, 0) (0 corresponds to PRU0)
- routing system event 10 with priority (chanell) 3 to PRU core 1: (10, 3, 1)
- routing system event 15 with priority (5) to MCPU interrupt 0*: (15, 5, 2)
* interrupts 2 through 9 (host_intr0 through host_intr7)

I am not sure but you probably refer to changing it to loosely dynamic
allocation but this will not work for any of them since:
- different system event is just a different sources (e.g. some of
them are tightly coupled with PRUSS industrial ethernet peripheral,
other with PRUSS UART, other are general purpose ones and so on).
- lower number channels have higher priority (10 different channels,
each with different priority).
- host interrupt 0 is for PRU core 0; host interrupt 1 is for PRU core
1; host interrupts 2 through 9 are for main CPU.

So the logic in patch #6 prevents mapping system events if it was
already assigned to a different channel or target (host interrupt) and
only fails if it cannot be satisfied. Moreover I do not see a way to
relax the static description since picking different numbers for each
individual: system event, channel and host interrupt will result with
something unintentional and wrong.

Sorry if I misunderstood you, if so could you please elaborate?

Thank you,
Grzegorz
