    I don't consider the powerpc virtual IRQs a solution for the problem.
    While I believe you did the right thing for powerpc with generalizing
    this over all its platforms, it really isn't more than a workaround
    for the problem that we can't deal well with the static irq_desc

    When that problem is now getting worse on other architectures, we
    should try to get it right on all of them, rather than spreading
    the workaround further.
