It was config.new that was busted! In my config.new/sem.c there are
uses of the constant "8" instead of MAXPARTITIONS. When I found this
and changed it everything worked OK! I wonder if this is fixed in
-current? I'm still at 941225 sources.
What I'm really satisfied with is that my GG2-connected ethernet seems
to have improved stability with the the interrupt remapping code.
I'll probably release a new ISA-kit after the weekend (I'll be
travelling without net-connectivity until Monday). One thing I
thought about: Is it really necessary to schedule an AUD3 int?
Wouldn't it just suffice to block INTF_EXTER, pop the saved a0, keep
the interrupt frame we have and lower the PSL directly instead. A
slight optimization, but it also makes things simpler in the source.
I also like to start a discussion on how a new interrupt handling
system should look like. Many of us have been aware that we need a
registration possibility, but Markus' changes also shows of the
interrupt remapping potential, could we make this somewhat more
flexible to use at a driver level? Suppose, we still want some INT6
device preempt the serial interface, but lower most other INT6
devices. Think about it, I will. I may volunteer to write something,
but I would like a consensus on what needs to be done.
