AMD Interrupt Controller IOAPIC Driver

When a hardware device generates an interrupt, it is detected by the IO-APIC it is connected to, and then routed across the system APIC bus to a particular CPU. The modern interrupt controller on the Intel architecture platform is known as the local Advanced Peripheral Interrupt Controller (APIC) and I/O APIC. The local. All the interrupt signals were sent to the in interrupt controller which then By using more than one IO-APIC one may obtain more interrupts and they are.

February Learn how and when to remove this template message There are a number of known bugs in implementations of APIC systems, especially with concern to how the is connected.

The interrupt vector and interrupt steering information can be specified per interrupt. This address is the same for each local APIC that exists in a configuration, meaning you are only able to directly access the registers of the local APIC of the core that AMD Interrupt Controller IOAPIC code is currently executing on.

The MADT contains the local APIC base and on bit systems it may also contain a field specifying a bit base address override which you ought to use instead. I don't think you can move it any further than the 4th Gb.

The correct value for this field is the IRQ number that you want to map the spurious interrupts to within the AMD Interrupt Controller IOAPIC 8 bits, and the 8th bit set to 1 to actually enable the APIC see the specification for more details. You should choose an interrupt number that has its lowest 4 bits set and is AMD Interrupt Controller IOAPIC 32 as you might guess ; easiest is to use 0xFF. This is important on some older processors because the lowest 4 bits for this value must be set to 1 on these.

Disable the PIC properly. Logical destination format It is totally representational.

Note that your paging code may not support automatically aligning physRegs to page-boundaries. In the case of MSI there is no sharing of interrupt lines: MSI interrupts also solve one more problem.

For example, let's imagine a situation where a device makes a memory-write transaction, and wants to signal about its completion through the interrupt. But a write transaction can be delayed on the bus in AMD Interrupt Controller IOAPIC process of its transmission and the device couldn't know about it. In this case the signal about the interrupt will come to the CPU first, so the processor will read not yet valid data.

If MSI is used, information about the MSI is transmitted in the same way as data messages, and so it can't come earlier. Now every device can AMD Interrupt Controller IOAPIC up to interrupts. It is also now possible to specify which CPU should process which interrupt.

It can be very useful for highload devices, like network cards for example.
