Hi Geert,

Thanks for looking into this. I am not sure of the difference it makes
with and without full irq-chip, but lemme explain the use case that we
are concerned about with virtio.

Eventually the interrupt should be visible to userspace, with
something like libgpiod. Which can then send the information over
virtio to the guest.

Will the interrupts be visible in userspace with your patch ?
