This looks a bit like a set_irq_type call.
Don't know if this is fully implemented for xics though...

According to the specs at some point in the system the HEA IRQs have a edge
characteristic.
But since PCI-E edge and level can both be forwarded through a message
interface
(HEA is not PCI-E, it's only connected to the same internal bus, where the
PHB resides)

Anybody from the xics experts want to comment on this?
