I think there's a problem that the side-effect of this change is that
interrupt initialization comes later, and so the dynamically allocated
arrays are not set up when the first interrupt comes in.

However, this particular change shouldn't have any effect on interrupts
being enabled early, right?

I have a local workaround which simply reverts the arrays back to
statically allocated, but it isn't very satisfactory (large memory hit,
esp if you're not running Xen).
