[Xen-devel] [PATCH] x86: fix ordering of operations in destroy_irq()

The fix for XSA-36, switching the default of vector map management to
be per-device, exposed more readily a problem with the cleanup of these
vector maps: dynamic_irq_cleanup() clearing desc->arch.used_vectors
keeps the subsequently invoked clear_irq_vector() from clearing the
bits for both the in-use and a possibly still outstanding old vector.

Fix this by folding dynamic_irq_cleanup() into destroy_irq(), which was
its only caller, deferring the clearing of the vector map pointer until
after clear_irq_vector().

Once at it, also defer resetting of desc->handler until after the loop
around smp_mb() checking for IRQ_INPROGRESS to be clear, fixing a
(mostly theoretical) issue with the intercation with do_IRQ(): If we
don't defer the pointer reset, do_IRQ() could, for non-guest IRQs, call
->ack() and ->end() with different ->handler pointers, potentially
leading to an IRQ remaining un-acked. The issue is mostly theoretical
because non-guest IRQs are subject to destroy_irq() only on (boot time)
error paths.

As to the changed locking: Invoking clear_irq_vector() with desc->lock
held is okay because vector_lock already nests inside desc->lock (proven
by set_desc_affinity(), which takes vector_lock and gets called from
various desc->handler->ack implementations, getting invoked with
desc->lock held).
