clear IRQ_NOPROBE, right?

Looking at the irq probe users:

drivers/input/touchscreen/ucb1400_ts.c
drivers/mfd/ucb1x00-core.c

The probe function was added in the initial implementation of the
driver (2006), so it predates device tree.

drivers/net/appletalk/ltpc.c
drivers/net/arcnet/com20020-isa.c
drivers/net/arcnet/com90io.c
drivers/net/arcnet/com90xx.c

Surely not stuff you find on todays ARM systems

drivers/net/ethernet/8390/ne.c
drivers/net/ethernet/8390/wd.c
drivers/net/ethernet/amd/lance.c
drivers/net/ethernet/amd/ni65.c
drivers/net/ethernet/amd/pcnet32.c

Ditto

drivers/net/ethernet/smsc/smc911x.c
drivers/net/ethernet/smsc/smc9194.c
drivers/net/ethernet/smsc/smc91x.c

Those might still be, but on the DT based boards the probing should be
completely irrelevant

drivers/net/hamradio/dmascc.c
drivers/net/wan/cosa.c
drivers/net/wan/sbni.c
drivers/parport/parport_pc.c

Surely not stuff you find on todays ARM systems

drivers/pcmcia/yenta_socket.c

Russell might still use that.

drivers/scsi/NCR53c406a.c
drivers/scsi/sym53c416.c
drivers/tty/cyclades.c

Surely not stuff you find on todays ARM systems

drivers/tty/serial/8250/8250_core.c

The irq probing is used by

mach-imx/mach-mx31ads.c
mach-iop32x/n2100.c

and X86

So in most of the irqchip drivers, this is irrelevant.

Thanks,

tglx
