So this is based off of my orig 3.2 port and I can see similar flow even in 3.7

(1) start_kernel
     early_irq_initd
       desc_set_defaults
         irqd_set(IRQD_IRQ_DISAB)

(2) For setting up IRQ dev to be per-cpu
     irq_set_percpu_devid
         irq_set_percpu_devid_flags
                irq_set_status_flags(IRQ_NOAUTOEN | ....)  <----

Am I missing/overlooking something ?

OK ! I can use that.

This is used in the SMP port patch to verify that number of IRQs have been
configured properly in hardware. This is again in mini-series #2 of v1 patchset
