Windows device driver information for VIA I/O APIC Interrupt Controller

The I/O Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controller is able to provide an interrupt management, which is a multi-processor and also incorporates dynamic and static symmetric interrupt type of distribution in all processors. Each subsystem in the VIA I/O APIC Interrupt Controller may have a set of interrupts in the systems, which have I/O multiple subsystems. Consequently every interrupt pin can be individually programmable level or edge triggered. The interrupt steering and interrupt vector information in the VIA I/O APIC Interrupt Controller can also be specified in each interrupt. The controller has a registering scheme, which is indirect and whose sole purpose is to optimize memory space that is needed to be able to access the internal registers for the I/O APIC. The 2 memory space for the I/O APIC can be relocated in the instance where there needs to be a system flexibility increase when the usage of memory space is being assigned.
