Looks good. But based on the comments raised previously I am wondering
        static int ppi_types[NR_PPIS]
which is set on configuration of such an interrupt and propagated to the
cpu local copy when a CPU comes up?

Apart from avoiding the slightly odd per_cpu(0) (even if hidden behind a
macro) it also means that there is less need to be concerned about which
processor ends up initialising an interrupt, which would simplify some
stuff around irq_set_type and platform_get_irq (essentially you could
then sanity check the change against ppi_types and then propagate to all
online cpus without further checks).
