Sorry. You're right.
I found the problem is CONFIG_SPARSE_IRQ is accidentally enabled in my config due to another out-of-tree patch
during my initial test and I always consider it as a problem.

So we can drop this patch safely for now.
But just need to consider how to deal with it when we want to enable SPARSE_IRQ.

Thanks.
