We'd take a CONFIG_NR_DYNIRQS patch (i.e., integrate with Kconfig). We'd
also love a patch that would make the IRQ space dynamically growable
(although I'm not sure how much impact this might have on non-xen-specific
irq code). Also potentially useful and easier to implement would be to make
the NR_DYN_IRQS selectable at boot time (i.e., via a boot parameter, or bump
it when the guest realises it is domain 0). But we don't want to change the
default for everyone all the time -- the current value is good for just
about everyone, and growing it just wastes space for most people.
