SubjectRe: [PATCH] X86: Change the default value of nr_irqs from 32 to NR_IRQs

So I believe the only case this affects is !CONFIG_HAVE_SPARSE_IRQ

The worry is that with CONFIG_HAVE_DYN_ARRAY we may waste memory by
pre-allocating more irq_descs than may be necessary (NR_IRQs vs 32)?

With !CONFIG_HAVE_DYN_ARRAY however, a static array of size NR_IRQS is
allocated instead - so doesn't defaulting nr_irqs back to NR_IRQS just
revert to the old behaviour (with the exception of the irq_descs being
allocated in pre_alloc_dyn_array instead)?
