No problem. I don't expect any problems as it is a simple reversion of the
definition of NR_IRQS on x86_64 to what we had before everything was merged
into irq_vectors.h and the x86_64 bits got lost.

With the result that NR_IRQS varies in practice between 244 and 4096
depending on how many cpus you have. We have had NR_IRQS that large on
x86_64 for a year or better now so I don't expect any practical problems.

The long term fix will obviously be kill NR_IRQS. But that is not a 2.6.27
term project.
