    There are a pile of drivers you would also need to fix up that use NR_IRQ
    sized tables. There is also the performance concern. The irq->desc
    conversion has to be very fast.

    It would be better (IMHO) if dev->irq and irq in general was a pointer
    whose number for end users was irq->num or similar.
