Right. David, can you fix this before committing?

I don't think so: on PV we end up setting legacy_pic to null_legacy_pic
in probe_8259A() and that will make nr_legacy_irqs() return 0.

Yes, HVMlite (or however we will end up calling it) will allow these
sorts of thing. But HVMlite is not supported yet at all. And it's x86 only.
