[PATCH v2] vfio-ccw: Permit missing IRQs

From: Eric Farman
Subject: [PATCH v2] vfio-ccw: Permit missing IRQs
Date: Wed, 21 Apr 2021 17:20:53 +0200

Commit 690e29b91102 ("vfio-ccw: Refactor ccw irq handler") changed
one of the checks for the IRQ notifier registration from saying
"the host needs to recognize the only IRQ that exists" to saying
"the host needs to recognize ANY IRQ that exists."

And this worked fine, because the subsequent change to support the
CRW IRQ notifier doesn't get into this code when running on an older
kernel, thanks to a guard by a capability region. The later addition
of the REQ(uest) IRQ by commit b2f96f9e4f5f ("vfio-ccw: Connect the
device request notifier") broke this assumption because there is no
matching capability region. Thus, running new QEMU on an older
kernel fails with:

  vfio: unexpected number of irqs 2

Let's adapt the message here so that there's a better clue of what
IRQ is missing.

Furthermore, let's make the REQ(uest) IRQ not fail when attempting
to register it, to permit running vfio-ccw on a newer QEMU with an
older kernel.

Fixes: b2f96f9e4f5f ("vfio-ccw: Connect the device request notifier")
Signed-off-by: Eric Farman <farman@linux.ibm.com>

     - Keep existing "invalid number of IRQs" message with adapted text [CH]
     - Move the "is this an error" test to the registration of the IRQ in
       question, rather than making it allowable for any IRQ mismatch [CH]
     - Drop Fixes tag for initial commit [EF]
