Yes. I have read it. Anyway, I started a discussion in genirq
with you cc-ed:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/c46ddb954cfe45d9849c911271d7ec23@hisilicon.com/

And thanks very much for all your efforts to help me understand
M68k. Let's get this clarified thoroughly in genirq level.

In arm, we also have some special high-priority interrupts
which are not NMI but able to preempt normal IRQ. They are
managed by arch-extended APIs rather than common APIs.

Neither arch_irqs_disabled() nor local_irq_disable() API can
access this kind of interrupts. They are using things specific
to ARM like:
local_fiq_disable()
local_fiq_enable()
set_fiq_handler()
disable_fiq()
enable_fiq()
...

so fiq doesn't bother us anyhow in genirq.
