Interesting. So with this commit: 482839e7 and bfbc226d
where we try our best to allocate IRQs for Xen starting from high and
then going down (so that when we are running in PV context with Xen PCI
passthrough we can allocate IRQs for physical devices above IRQ 16 and
not collide with Xen event channels), this would still work.

But we actually wouldn't test the availability of the first sixteen IRQ
for a long time (or never).
