Ack on the name change, it should be called arch_init_irq_desc(), the
existing name clearly comes from the fact that sparse IRQ was
implemented first on x86, and on x86 that routine init's the chip data
for a new irq_desc.

But semantically arch_init_irq_desc() is the right name, I was just too
lazy to change it when I enabled sparse IRQ for powerpc.

Can't comment on the rest of the patch.
