Subject[PATCH 2/2] xen/irq: Don't fall over when nr_irqs_gsi > nr_irqs.
Date
This scenario where the nr_irq_gsi is greater than nr_irqs
is rather strange but lets still try to survive. Make sure
to print a warning so the user wouldn't be surprised in case
things don't work.

Solves a bootup-crash when booting Xen and Linux under QEMU.
