    SubjectRe: [RFC] irq handling code consolidation, second try (ppc part)

    On ppc64 irqs are sparse and can be very large (> 1000) so we have a
    mapping between them and slots in irq_desc[NR_IRQS]. I wonder how
    hard it would be to kill irq_desc and just dynamically allocate
    irq_desc stuff. That would solve my problem.
