I got some open questions that someone actually reviewing this code or just stumbling by might be able to answer:
- is PI_TTY the preferred thread priority, or should it be something else?
- I read locking(9), mutex(9), bus_setup_intr(9) and a paper on locking mechanisms in FreeBSD and think that I got a fair idea about the basic principles, but I think I still didn't get a grasp on when sleeping is allowed when using an interrupt routine. From what I understand, I almost always need to create a task queue due to the fact that almost all bus implementations call mtx_sleep at some point. Is that correct? Then again I think I saw some modules calling bus operations (that possibly call mtx_sleep) during interrupt handling directly from the associated ithread routine. Are they doing it wrong?
- If I use a task queue to handle interrupts and retrieve data from a device and that retrieval method goes to sleep eventually. From my understanding I should release my locks before and reacquire them after the bus operation. What is the preferred method to prevent another thread trying to detach the sleeping module? Possible solutions I figured that might be applicable are flag and condition variable or nested mutex. But what is the right way to do it, or is it even unnecessary because some internal mechanism prevents detaching (device busy msg)?
Thanks for your help.
I just uploaded a new diff that lacks the changes to usb. iichid for now depends on usb but should be easier to test.

- Tested against base revision 338291.
- Sampling mode was added to periodically poll for reporrts (see Test Plan for further information)
- Still make sure to have a running iicbus implementation
- it was reported in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=221777 that a panic occures when trying to load iichid and acpi_iichid by bootloader kld_list in rc.conf is still the way to go if you tested manually beforehand.

It appears that GPIO interrupt allocation is implemented in general, but I think chipset support might yet be missing for Intel PCH.

Daniel provideddmesg output for his laptop, thanks for the effort.
