It's interesting that arm64 isn't affected by this problem, since we don't
update the active_irqs mask for PPIs there and consequently just pass the
irq instead of the cpu_pmu. I can't see why we actually need to update the
active_irqs mask for arch/arm/, so could we remove that and follow arm64's
lead instead? That would remove the need for a new struct definition too.
