#define OPAL_INT_EOI 124 static int64_t opal_int_eoi(uint32_t xirr);
Modelled on the
H_EOI PAPR call.
This can return a positive value, which means more interrupts are queued for that CPU/priority and must be fetched as the XIVE is not guaranteed to assert the CPU external interrupt line again until the pending queue for the current priority has been emptied.
For P9 and above systems where host doesn’t know about interrupt controller. An OS can instead make OPAL calls for XICS emulation.
For an OS to use this OPAL call, an
ibm,opal-intc compatible device must
exist in the device tree (see I - Device-tree updates). If OPAL does not create
such a device, the host OS MUST NOT use this call.
