And lets add one more:

Subject: [PATCH 5/5] pci/xen: When free-ing MSI-X/MSI irq->desc also use 
generic code.

This code path is only run when an MSI/MSI-X PCI device is passed
in to PV DomU.

In 2.6.37 time-frame we over-wrote the default cleanup handler for
MSI/MSI-X irq->desc to be "xen_teardown_msi_irqs". That function
calls the the xen-pcifront driver which can tell the backend to
cleanup/take back the MSI/MSI-X device.

However, we forgot to continue the process of free-ing the MSI/MSI-X
device resources (irq->desc) in the PV domU side. Which is what
the default cleanup handler "default_teardown_msi_irqs" did.

Hence we would leak IRQ descriptors.

Without this patch, doing "rmmod igbvf;modprobe igbvf" multiple
times ends with abandoned IRQ descriptors:

 28:          5  xen-pirq-pcifront-msi-x
 29:          8  xen-pirq-pcifront-msi-x
130:         10  xen-pirq-pcifront-msi-x

with the end result of running out of IRQ descriptors.
