Yes, I tested with:
qemu-system-x86_64 -m 256 -vnc 0.0.0.0:1 -k en-gb -serial stdio -boot nc \
-usb -usbdevice tablet \
-net nic,vlan=0,macaddr=00:16:3e:3f:73:b6,model=e1000 \
-net tap,vlan=0,ifname=tapQEMU.0 \
-hda /dev/VG/debian-HVM-1

Booting a recent Xen hypervisor + this kernel.

The comment should really have been updated to reflect the importance of
e7bcecb7b1d2 rather than 026c9d2d0d75. I'll update to:

With the introduction of e7bcecb7b1d2 "genirq: Make nr_irqs
runtime expandable" nr_irqs can grow as necessary to accommodate
our allocation requests.
