Subject: RE: [RESEND 1/1] gic: its: Make sure a LPI is discarded before free.

Hi Marc:

Thank you for your reply. 

As you said, APIs such as free_irq will deactivate irq
before free it. But deactivation is not forced by every API,
for example irq_dispose_mapping.  So I think it's better to check 
that irq was deactivated as expected.

BRs,
Yuanyuan
