that is not enough.

[PATCH] sparseirq: mvoe two weak functions to chip.c

Impact: fix panic

some gcc compiler will remove the weak global blank function
Linus noted that we could move those function to other unit to workaround it.

try to workaround it:
1. one time path: add printk
2. multi time path: move to chip.c
