Subject: [PATCH v2 0/2] PCI: Check for platform_get_irq() failure consistently

From: Bjorn Helgaas <>

All callers of platform_get_irq() and related functions interpret a
negative return value as an error.  A few also interpret zero as an error.

platform_get_irq() should return either a negative error number or a valid
non-zero IRQ, so there's no need to check for zero.

This series:

  - Extends the platform_get_irq() function comment to say it returns a
    non-zero IRQ number or a negative error number.

  - Adds a WARN() if platform_get_irq() ever *does* return zero (this would
    be a bug in the underlying arch code, and most callers are not prepared
    for this).

  - Updates drivers/pci/ to check consistently using "irq < 0".

This is based on Aman's series [1].  I propose to merge this via the PCI
tree, given acks from Greg and Thomas.
