    The GSI number for 0000:2b.01.0 pci device is 240.
    The GSI number for 0000:2b.01.1 pci device is 244.

    In the function of add_pin_to_irq (in io_apic_64.c) there exists the
    following checks.
    > BUG_ON(irq >= NR_IRQS);

    On the 2.6.16 kernel OS will map a GSI number to a different IRQ
    below NR_IRQS(this macro definition is 224). So there is no problem.

    But on the x86_64 platform of 2.6.26 kernel OS will treat the GSI number
    as the IRQ number. As the GSI number for 00:2b.01.0 pci device is above
    224, it will print the kernel panic info.

    From the test log it seems that this issue is related with the GSI
    mapping mechanism. Maybe it will be OK to use the same GSI mapping
    mechanism as x86_32 platform.
