I think I really just forgot to get rid of it. It was introduced in commit
c288bf2533e57174b90b07860c4391bcd1ea269c ("m68k/irq: Rename
irq_controller to irq_chip").

I think I added the FIXME because I got puzzled by the return value change
from (signed) int to unsigned int, which doesn't match well with a negative
error number.

However:
1. While irq_chip.irq_startup() returns unsigned int, irq_startup()
does return
int (why this difference, historical reasons?), so it becomes a negative
number again later,
2. The return value of irq_startup() seems to used in
kernel/irq/autoprobe.c:probe_irq_on() only, and the actual (non-zero) value
doesn't matter, just whether it returns zero or non-zero.

So I'm gonna take this patch, unless someone screams with a very good reason.
