linux 2.4.x, PPC and openPIC interrupt priorities

Thanks a lot Cort, that's a big help.

We're wondering if rtlinux-3.0-pre10 patches can also be applied to your latest
bitkeeper 2.4.1-preX  linux.
It is mentioned that the patches are to be applied to linux-2.4.0-test1.

It sure is unfortunate, to my mind, that regular linux handles interrupts that
'enable all/disable all', way.
But I understand the predicament of dealing with tons of different PICs.   Must drive
driver writers nuts. :-)
Might actually make writing linux drivers for some hardware, impossible.

If we think we need mods to RTLinux for our purposes, I'll let you know.

regards, Ron
