    Subject[PATCH 20/25] irq: Generalize the check for HARDIRQ_BITS.
    This patch adds support for systems that cannot receive every interrupt
    on a single cpu simultaneously, in the check to see if we have enough HARDIRQ_BITS.

    MAX_HARDIRQS_PER_CPU becomes the count of the maximum number of hardare
    generated interrupts per cpu.

    On architectures that support per cpu interrupt delivery this can be a
    significant space savings and scalability bonus.

    This patch adds support for systems that cannot receive every interrupt on
