This looks suspicious. What would you be passing to
xen_irq_info_virq_setup() below?

I also think that, given that this patch is trying to get types in
order, find_virq() will need more changes: it is supposed to return
evtchn_port_t. But then it also wants to return a (signed) error.

Right. But then why is the declaration in include/xen/xenbus.h (at the
very end of the patch) different?

Here too.

And why not here, especially since you updated format?

This definition comes from Xen so I think it needs to be fixed there first.
