name name for /proc/interrupts startup start up the interrupt (defaults to ->enable if NULL) shutdown shut down the interrupt (defaults to ->disable if NULL) enable enable the interrupt (defaults to chip->unmask if NULL) disable disable the interrupt ack start of a new interrupt mask mask an interrupt source mask_ack ack and mask an interrupt source unmask unmask an interrupt source eoi end of interrupt - chip level end end of interrupt - flow level set_affinity set the CPU affinity on SMP machines retrigger resend an IRQ to the CPU set_type set the flow type (IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL/etc.) of an IRQ set_wake enable/disable power-management wake-on of an IRQ bus_lock function to lock access to slow bus (i2c) chips bus_sync_unlock function to sync and unlock slow bus (i2c) chips release release function solely used by UML typename obsoleted by name, kept as migration helper AUTHORS
