I have to admit that I'm quite puzzled by this still being massaged
the way it is, rather than getting converted to proper per-CPU
IRQs (i.e. with one global IRQ and only per-CPU event channels).
Not only conserves this on resources (irrespective of IRQs not
being a scarce resources anymore with SPARSE_IRQS), it also
makes /proc/interrupts output a lot more manageable on domains
with many vCPU-s.

I did this years ago for our kernels, but due to time constraints
can't offer to do the same for the upstream kernel until we get
ready to switch to using it in favor of the forward port.
