Well, perhaps. But we can use vectors rather than IRQs for Xen event
channel mappings, which will save us from having to allocate lots of
per-cpu irqs.

Also, implementing probe_nr_irqs() in a more generic (rather than
io_apic-specific) way. Using some interface that queries each irq chip
for how many irqs it supports, or something.
