(CC him)

IIRC, he only moves the private_irqs field. I think we should move the
whole structure, to give more space for the future.

This patch will be necessary for the GICv3 serie has vcpu_vgic_init will
be able to fail (see patch #10).

Ideally, for bisection purpose, it should be applied before the patch #10.
