Just a minor thing, but if there are still unused irqs available at the end of
the current range, you'll end up expanding the range more then you need to.
So either do
irq_expand_nr_irqs(nr_irqs - start + cnt);
or change irq_expand_nr_irqs to let it take the new total number of irqs.

Btw., with this patch in place does it make sense to initialize nr_irqs to
anything else then initcnt in early_irq_init?
