genirq: Provide a lockdep helper
Thomas Gleixner [Tue, 22 Mar 2011 16:08:15 +0000 (17:08 +0100)]
Some irq chips need to call genirq functions for nested chips from
their callbacks. That upsets lockdep. So they need to set a different
lock class for those nested chips. Provide a helper function to avoid
open access to irq_desc.
