[IA64] workaround NaT consumption fault when hiding a PCI function from dom0

The free_irq() path seems to have trouble with devices hidden from
dom0 for driver domains.  The result is a NaT consumption fault in
the reboot notifier_call_chain() when dom0 reboots.  This workaround
prevents the problem until it can be further investigated.
