To be honest I'm not entirely sure what that check was protecting
anyway. Possibly it comes from a time when the GSI<->IRQ was 1-1 and
prevented us from spilling off the end of the irq_info array.

It may be that it is safe to have gsi > nr_irqs in an earlier patch in
this series (possibly "xen: events: maintain a list of Xen interrupts")
or even in one of my earlier series which switched to using the core
interrupt allocation logic and/or removed the 1-1 mapping above
nr_irqs_gsi in certain cases.

Anyway, this is the first patch where I'm pretty sure it is safe to
allow GSI > nr_irqs since there are no nr_irqs based limitations left
apart from the pirq one.

Ian.
