Hi Thomas,

A small number of users of IRQF_TIMER are using it for the implied no
suspend behaviour on interrupts which are not timer interrupts.

Therefore the following series renames the IRQF_TIMER flag to
IRQF_NO_SUSPEND and updates the users which are not timer interrupts to
use the new name. IRQF_TIMER is retained as an alias for

The final patch in the series adds a new user the flag which disables
suspend of Xen IPI IRQs.


The following changes since commit fc0f5ac8fe693d1b05f5a928cc48135d1c8b7f2e:
