Right.

We can't because its a slow bus ? And unmask can be called from
irq-context. That's exactly why we had the irq_bus_lock/unlock
discussion earlier.

You mean without scheduling a work ?

Lemme try to explain answer to all other question together here.

The irq related functions get called in two scenarios:

- request_irq() or irq_set_irq_type(), enable/disable_irq(), etc:

  The call sequence here is like this:

  ->irq_bus_lock()

  ->spin-lock-irqsave
  ->irq_mask()/irq_unmask()/irq_set_type()..
  ->spin-unlock-irqsave

  ->irq_bus_unlock()


  So the mask/unmask/set-type routines can't issue virtio requests and
  we need to do that from irq_bus_unlock(). This shall answer your
  question about mask/unmask, right ? Or maybe I misunderstood them
  then ?


- Interrupt: i.e. buffer sent back by the host over virtio.

  virtio_gpio_event_vq() schedules a work item, which processes the
  items from the eventq virtqueue and eventually calls
  generic_handle_irq(). The irq-core can issue calls to
  ->irq_mask/unmask() here without a prior call to
  irq_bus_lock/unlock(), normally they will balance out by the end,
  but I am not sure if it is guaranteed. Moreover, interrupt should be
  re-enabled only after unmask() is called (for ONESHOT) and not at
  EOI, right ?

  I chose not to queue the buffers back from eoi() as it is possible
  that we won't want to queue them at all, as the interrupt needs to
  be disabled by the time generic_handle_irq() returns. And so I did
  everything from the end of vgpio_work_handler()'s loop, i.e. either
  disable the interrupts with VIRTIO_GPIO_IRQ_TYPE_NONE or enable the
  interrupt again by re-queuing the buffer.

Regarding irq handling using work-item, I had to move to that to take
care of locking for re-queuing the buffers for a GPIO line from
irq-handler and bus-unlock. Nothing else seemed to work, though I am
continuing to look into that to see if there is an alternative here.
