Err, I meant 3.2 subitem 5 "Note" "In a multiprocessor implementation,
the GIC handles(...)" too, sorry

  arm gic: interrupt model never 1 on non-mpcore and race condition in

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  For a 1-N interrupt (any SPI on the GICv2), as mandated by the TRM,
  only one CPU can acknowledge the IRQ until it becomes inactive.

  The TRM also mandates that SGIs and PPIs follow the N-N model and that
  SPIs follow the 1-N model.

  However this is not currently the case with QEMU. I have locally (no
  minimal test case) seen e.g. uart interrupts being acknowledged twice
  before having been deactivated (expected: irqId on one CPU and 1023 on
  the other instead).

  I have narrowed the issue down to the following:

  1) arm_gic_common_reset resets all irq_state[id] fields to 0. This
  means all IRQ will use the N-N model, and if s->revision !=
  REV_11MPCORE, then there's no way to set any interrupt to 1-N.

  If ""fixed"" locally with a hackjob, I still have the following trace:

  pl011_irq_state 534130.800 pid=2424 level=0x1
  gic_set_irq 2.900 pid=2424 irq=0x21 level=0x1 cpumask=0xff target=0xff

  pl011_write 30.700 pid=2424 addr=0x38 value=0x0

  gic_cpu_write 110.600 pid=2424 s=cpu cpu=0x0 addr=0x10 val=0x21
  gic_cpu_write 193.400 pid=2424 s=cpu cpu=0x0 addr=0x1000 val=0x21
  pl011_irq_state 1169.500 pid=2424 level=0x0

  This is because:

  2) gic_acknowledge_irq calls gic_clear_pending which uses
  GIC_DIST_CLEAR_PENDING but this usually has no effect on level-
  sensitive interrupts.

  With this often being a no-op (ie. assuming ispendr was not written
  to), any 1-n level-sensitive interrupt is still improperly pending on
  all the other cores.

  (Also, I don't really know how the qemu thread model works, there
  might be race conditions in the acknowledgment logic if
  gic_acknowledge_irq is called by multiple threads, too.)
