This is a lot of stuff, and it's not all related, so putting it all
together in one series makes it hard for me to deal with it.

This doesn't seem related to eliminating weak functions.

>   s390/MSI: Use __msi_mask_irq() instead of default_msi_mask_irq()

These two seem to go together.

These seem to go together (it'd be nice if they were all capitalized the
same).

I don't like the "msi_chip" name because the "chip" part doesn't convey
much information, other than telling us that apparently some sort of
semiconductor integrated circuit is involved.  I sort of assumed that
much :)

Something like "msi_controller" would be more descriptive since we're
talking about an interrupt controller that accepts writes from a device and
turns them into CPU interrupts, e.g., a LAPIC.

Huh.  I was hoping this was going to simplify things, and maybe it does
somehow, but it's unfortunate that it adds 110 lines of code overall.  Does
that seem right to you?  Why does it add code?

Who do you want to apply this?  I can take it if that makes the most sense,
but I'd like acks from the architecture folks for their pieces, and
especially one from Thomas for the overall direction and the x86 parts.

If you want me to take this, can you refresh it to be based on v3.18-rc1?
I tried to apply it on v3.18-rc1, but [15/27] didn't apply because of
conflicts in arch/x86/kernel/apic/io_apic.c.

I'll look at these more tomorrow, I'm getting bleary-eyed tonight.
