No, this is missing the point - that's way too low for many systems
(most except x86 I guess). The idea is that since we're using sparse
IRQs we've much less reason to restrict the number of IRQs than we do
when we've got a statically allocated table so we can have a higher
default, meaning less need for platforms to individually select a higher
