[PATCH 02/28] genirq: Add irq_alloc_reserved_desc()

From: Yinghai Lu
Date: Sat Aug 10 2013 - 22:56:52 EST

For ioapic hot-add support, it would be easy if we have continuous
irq numbers for hot added ioapic controller.

We can reserve irq range at first, and later allocate desc for those
pre-reserved irqs when they are needed.

The reasons for not allocating them during reserving:
1. only several pins of one ioapic are used, allocate for all pins, will
waste memory for not used pins.
2. allocate later when is needed could make sure irq_desc is allocated
on local node ram, as dev->node is set at that point.

-v2: update changelog by adding reasons, requested by Konrad.
-v3: according to tglx:
separate core code change with arch code change.
change function name to irq_alloc_reserved_desc.
kill __irq_is_reserved().
remove not need exports.
according to Sebastian:
spare one comments by put two functions together.
