I don't think this assumption holds, since xen_register_pirq can be
called at any time and basically unconditionally references

If we don't want to remove the __init from acpi_sci_override_gsi then
perhaps xen_setup_acpi_sci needs to stash it somewhere?

Or maybe xen_register_pirq could take an "int force_irq" which, if not
-1, would force a particular IRQ. The callsite in xen_setup_acpi_sci
(actually via xen_register_gsi so the param would need to be propagated
there) would be the only actual user?

The xen_unplug_emulated_devices change looks correct to me since
xen_unplug_emulated_devices is called from xen_arch_hvm_post_suspend.
