Interrupt line to allocate
Function to be called when the IRQ occurs. Primary handler for threaded interrupts If NULL and thread_fn != NULL the default primary handler is installed
Function called from the irq handler thread If NULL, no irq thread is created
Interrupt type flags
An ascii name for the claiming device
A cookie passed back to the handler function
This call allocates interrupt resources and enables the interrupt line and IRQ handling. From the point this call is made your handler function may be invoked. Since your handler function must clear any interrupt the board raises, you must take care both to initialise your hardware and to set up the interrupt handler in the right order.
If you want to set up a threaded irq handler for your device
then you need to supply
still called in hard interrupt context and has to check
whether the interrupt originates from the device. If yes it
needs to disable the interrupt on the device and return
IRQ_WAKE_THREAD which will wake up the handler thread and run
thread_fn. This split handler design is necessary to support
Dev_id must be globally unique. Normally the address of the device data structure is used as the cookie. Since the handler receives this value it makes sense to use it.
If your interrupt is shared you must pass a non NULL dev_id as this is required when freeing the interrupt.
