    PPI. The interrupt has to be enabled by the very same CPU that wants
    to receive the interrupt. Other CPUs on the system do not have access
    to the interrupt enable bits for PPIs.

    That's something which genirq can't handle because it doesn't _actually_
    support real per-CPU interrupts - iow, ones which are truely private to
    CPU N.

    Eg, if IRQ 29 is the local timer interrupt, then CPU0 has its own IRQ29
    which is distinctly different - and has separate enable registers and
    ultimately different timer hardware - from CPU1's IRQ29.

    On the other SMP platforms, these interrupts aren't handled by genirq,
    but we do control them via code like the above (which I'm about to kill
    off and move that detail into gic.c.)
