The is_mask_count field is nominally protected by cpu_lock ... but the vectors don't take that lock.  So I disable interrupts there to ensure the hw state and the mask_count is consistent from the PoV of the vectors.  I'll add some comments to explain it.

Yes, good catch.  I also noticed a few other places where I should be checking is_mask_count before calling pic_hwunmask, and also realized that I needed to add some code to handle the set_affinity flow ... it's complicated by the fact that an intr_mask()'d interrupt will always be "pending", so some care is needed.  Specifically, before waiting for "pending" to drain out, I now mark the interrupt sources as "distribution-pending" ... so when intr_unmask() comes along, it won't re-enable the source at the hardware if it sees that, but will still force processing of the source if it was marked as interrupt-pending.

Thanks, I'll take a look at those, too.
