It doesn't really need to be an irq.  The main reason was so that it
would appear in /proc/interrupts so I could use the counter as a "number
of times a spinlock was kicked" counter.  That could be exposed in some
other way if being part of the interrupt infrastructure brings too much
baggage with it.
