| Well there must have been an earlier change that resulted in detecting 5
| IOAPICs instead of just 1, but that presumably would work as long as the
| irq_desc array was dynamically allocated. This reversion breaks that.

Hmm... wich means the problem in area of detecting IOAPICs but this number
we got from ACPI... have to check.

|
| You don't really need to see the config; NR_IRQS is *always* 224 on
| normal x86-32 systems.

Ben, how could I know that you're using 32bit version, unfortunately
I don't recite in my mind "NR_IRQS is 224 on x86-32" every minute :)

| Ben.
