And, btw, even if anybody actually does this, it should be up to the
interrupt controller logic to re-initialize the interrupts so that they
are back where they belong. IOW, we should never show such _idiotic_
brokenness to any actual driver, it should all be remapped and handled
below them.

And I still have never heard any valid reason to do it in the first place,
so until somebody actually gives a real example and an explanation, I
would suggest ignoring the whole issue as some insane rumblings from crazy
hw/firmare people doing idiotic things.
