Description

There are two problems with interrupts in nvme right now:

  • the initial interrupts is always FIXED, yet the spec allows single-message MSI as well
  • the interrupt handler always claims the interrupt, even if no work was done

As was reported that FIXED causes problems on a system with 24 NVMe devices that don't support MSI, we decided to allow single-message MSI-X for the initial interrupt despite what the spec says.
