I have a patch that takes the code out of powerpc and puts in kernel/irq
where both powerpc and c6x can use it. That leaves us with two files in
kernel/irq trying to manage hw <--> virt mappings. So, some merging of
irqdomain.c and the former powerpc code is needed. I'm not sure how that
should go. At the moment, irqdomain doesn't support dynamic allocation
of irq_descs, so its not currently suitable for powerpc or c6x.

I had changed it in a few minor ways, but looking again, I probably
didn't need to change it at all. In the patch to generalize it, I
simply did s/NUM_ISA_INTERRUPTS/NR_IRQS_LEGACY/.

It was leftover cruft from a previous incarnation. Not needed, so
I took it out.
