None of the evtchn_make_refcounted() failures can occur since we know we
have a valid irq and info at the single call site.

I would like to see this fixed by refactoring the code to remove
evtchn_make_refcounted() by making all irqs for event channels reference
counted.  These no need for this refcounting to be optional.
