Currently we already found it causes regressions to power management
subsystem and pciback driver, but other drivers may have the same
assumption. So it's safer to refine the irq resource management.
And it doesn't really provide much benefit to reclaim irq resource
when there's still a driver bound to the device.

Sorry, I copied the wrong email address. Will fix it in next version.
