Hello Marc,

I am hoping you can help me pinpoint what's missing in my code,
to have it behave the way you describe.

As you have stated, I have *two* struct irq_chip:
one is mine (tango_chip), the other not_mine (msi_chip).

static struct irq_chip tango_chip = {
	.name			= "TANGO IRQ_CHIP",
	.irq_compose_msi_msg	= tango_compose_msi_msg,
	.irq_set_affinity	= tango_set_affinity,
	.irq_ack		= tango_ack,
	.irq_mask		= tango_mask,
	.irq_unmask		= tango_unmask,

static struct irq_chip msi_chip = {
	.name = "NOT MY IRQ_CHIP",
	.irq_ack = not_mine_ack,
	.irq_mask = not_mine_mask,
	.irq_unmask = not_mine_unmask,

A struct msi_domain_info links to the msi_chip.

static struct msi_domain_info msi_dom_info = {
	.chip	= &msi_chip,

irq_dom = irq_domain_create_linear(fwnode, MSI_COUNT, &irq_dom_ops, pcie);
msi_dom = pci_msi_create_irq_domain(fwnode, &msi_dom_info, irq_dom);

I believe irq_dom and tango_chip are tied together by:

	irq_domain_set_info(dom, virq, pos, &tango_chip, pcie, handle_edge_irq, NULL, NULL);

My biggest problem is that tango_unmask() is never called.

Here is the log of function calls as they happen on my system:

It's driving me nuts. Do you know what might be wrong?
