This series aims to improve IPI support in Linux RISC-V in following ways:
 1) Treat IPIs as normal per-CPU interrupts instead of having custom RISC-V
    specific hooks. This also makes Linux RISC-V IPI support aligned with
    other architectures.
 2) Remote TLB flushes and icache flushes should prefer local IPIs instead
    of SBI calls whenever we have specialized hardware (such as RISC-V AIA
    IMSIC and RISC-V SWI) which allows S-mode software to directly inject
    IPIs without any assistance from M-mode runtime firmware.

These patches were originally part of the "Linux RISC-V ACLINT Support"
series but this now a separate series so that it can be merged independently
of the "Linux RISC-V ACLINT Support" series.
(Refer, https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20211007123632.697666-1-anup.patel@wdc.com/)

These patches are also a preparatory patches for the up-coming:
 1) Linux RISC-V AIA support
 2) Linux RISC-V SWI support

These patches can also be found in riscv_ipi_imp_v13 branch at:

Changes since v12:
 - Rebased on Linux-6.1-rc7
 - Bring-back the IPI optimization in ipi_mux_send_mask() for PATCH3
 - Call ipi_mux_send() for one target CPU at a time in PATCH3

Changes since v11:
 - Removed ipi_mux_pre/post_handle() callbacks in PATCH3
 - Removed sturct ipi_mux_ops in PATCH3
 - Removed parent_virq and data pointer from everywhere in PATCH3
 - Removed struct ipi_mux_control in PATCH3
 - Improved function signature of ipi_mux_send() callback in PATCH3
 - Used unsigned type with atomic operation in PATCH3

Changes since v10:
 - Rebased on Linux-6.1-rc5
 - Drop the "!(pending & ibit)" check in ipi_mux_send_mask() of PATCH3
 - Disable local interrupts in ipi_mux_send_mask() of PATCH3 because we
   can be preempted while using a per-CPU temporary variable.

Changes since v9:
 - Rebased on Linux-6.1-rc3
 - Updated header comment block of ipi-mux.c in PATCH3
 - Use a struct for global data of ipi-mux.c in PATCH3
 - Add per-CPU temp cpumask for sending IPIs in PATCH3
 - Drop the use of fwspec in PATCH3
 - Use static key for ipi_mux_pre_handle() and ipi_mux_post_handle()
   in PATCH3
 - Remove redundant pr_warn_ratelimited() called by ipi_mux_process()
   in PATCH3
 - Remove CPUHP thingy from ipi_mux_create() in PATCH3

Changes since v8:
 - Rebased on Linux-6.0-rc3
 - Use dummy percpu data as parameter for request_percpu_irq() in PATCH4.

Changes since v7:
 - Rebased on Linux-6.0-rc1
 - Use atomic operations to track per-CPU pending and enabled IPIs in PATCH3.
   (Note: this is inspired from IPI muxing implemented in
 - Made "struct ipi_mux_ops" (added by PATCH3) flexible so that
   drivers/irqchip/irq-apple-aic.c can adopt it in future.

Changes since v6:
 - Rebased on Linux-5.19-rc7
 - Added documentation for struct ipi_mux_ops in PATCH3
 - Dropped dummy irq_mask()/unmask() in PATCH3
 - Added const for "ipi_mux_chip" in PATCH3
 - Removed "type" initialization from ipi_mux_domain_alloc() in PATCH3
 - Dropped translate() from "ipi_mux_domain_ops" in PATCH3
 - Improved barrier documentation in ipi_mux_process() of PATCH3
 - Added percpu check in ipi_mux_create() for parent_virq of PATCH3
 - Added nr_ipi parameter in ipi_mux_create() of PATCH3

Changes since v5:
 - Rebased on Linux-5.18-rc3
 - Used kernel doc style in PATCH3
 - Removed redundant loop in ipi_mux_process() of PATCH3
 - Removed "RISC-V" prefix form ipi_mux_chip.name of PATCH3
 - Removed use of "this patch" in PATCH3 commit description
 - Addressed few other nit comments in PATCH3

Changes since v4:
 - Rebased on Linux-5.17
 - Includes new PATCH3 which adds mechanism to multiplex a single HW IPI

Changes since v3:
 - Rebased on Linux-5.17-rc6
 - Updated PATCH2 to not export riscv_set_intc_hwnode_fn()
 - Simplified riscv_intc_hwnode() in PATCH2

Changes since v2:
 - Rebased on Linux-5.17-rc4
 - Updated PATCH2 to not create synthetic INTC fwnode and instead provide
   a function which allows drivers to directly discover INTC fwnode

Changes since v1:
 - Use synthetic fwnode for INTC instead of irq_set_default_host() in PATCH2
