Do you mean we don't support Lowest priority interrupts? As I mentioned before,
Lowest priority interrupts is widely used in Linux, so I think supporting lowest priority
interrupts is very important for Linux guest OS. Do you have any ideas/suggestions about
how to support Lowest priority interrupts for PI? Thanks a lot!

Thanks,
