    So it turns out that this is not due to init_ISA_irqs(). However,
    increasing NR_IRQS_LEGACY to 32 allows the code to get past that.

    This crash is in irq_domain_add_legacy() which tries to call the IRQ
    domain's .map() function, which isn't implemented for the I/O APIC.
    Adding an empty function allows the system to boot without any
    noticeable errors.

    I need to read up on the whole I/O APIC stuff because this is not really
    a fix and I don't know any better. Also, the CE4100 should exhibit the
    same issue after the above-mentioned commit. Can somebody more
    knowledgeable shed some light on this?
