Sure it does. Do something like this in a header file

static inline int translate_irq_number(...)
{
#ifdef CONFIG_ACPI_BOOT
return fn_ptr_xxx();
#else
return irq;
#endif
}
which means that yes, it uses the function pointer when it is meaningful,
but if there is no point, the code just goes away.

At _least_ write out what the hell "gsi" is.

TLA's are bad. "gsi" apparently isn't the Geological Survey of Ireland,
but that's all I can tell from google.
