    Part of what I am thinking is that there should never be a patch
    that does s/NR_IRQS/nr_irqs/ that is just pointless noise.

    Either we need a new abstraction like for_each_irq or to update the
    code to the current best practices.

    Which means the patches should be uncontroversial and mergeble on their
    own with no weird dependencies.
