Ugh. This isn't easy. The legacy mapping really needs all the
irq_desc structures to be allocated. You could call irq_alloc_descs()
before calling irq_domain_add_legacy(), but that causes all the
irq_descs to be allocated (regardless of whether they are used), and
it will break io_apic_setup_irq_pin() which also wants to call
irq_alloc_desc().

Ideally irq_domain support would be rolled directly into ioapic.
That's more work though, and a greater change of breaking x86 on
non-embedded. Looking at the ioapic code, it seems to me that it
could be simplified quite a bit by switching to irq_domain instead of
using the custom irq_cfg linked list. Faster too since it could use
the irq_data->hwirq to go from linux irq to the hw irq number. It
doesn't look like it would be even that hard, but of course the devil
is in the details and I don't have sufficient time right now to dig
into the guts of the ioapic. Maybe after connect, but it would help
if you can find time to look at it.

If integrated into the ioapic code, then the irq_domain linear map is
probably the type of irq_domain to use.
