Thanks for the patch.

I feel like this comment (also in the code) could be misleading because vectors
above first_system_vector are effectively not tracked in per_cpu vector_irq, but
also may not have the bit set in used_vectors. For example, used_vectors from a
system that I am looking at now:

first_system_vector
239 255
| |
10 01000 11111 11111

test_bit(240, used_vectors) does not return the correct answer to the question
about whether the vector is tracked in per_cpu vector_irq. This leads to two
meanings for the bitmap; for vectors less than first_system_vector whether or
not they are tracked in per_cpu vector_irq, and for vectors above
first_system_vector, whether or not they are in use:

static inline int is_per_cpu_vector(int vector) {
return !test_bit(vector, used_vectors) &&
vector < first_system_vector;
}

Thanks,
Linn
