I pretty much expected it would be. :-p

Hmmm... I though I had merged a patch that does that.

/me goes to look again...

Okay, I did write that patch, but I never merged it because it didn't
get much review and I was already nervous about the other irq_domain
changes. I'll post it again and ask for feedback.

Yeah, I've got a different way to fix it though. There is exactly one
user of irq_virq_count in-tree right now: PS3. Also, irq_virq_count
is only useful for the NOMAP mapping. So, instead of having a single
global irq_virq_count values, I've dropped it entirely and added a
max_irq argument to irq_domain_add_nomap(). That makes it a property
of an individual nomap irq domain instead of a global system settting.

Hopefully I'll have a draft patch ready today.
