Seems like things were more complex than Julien expected here, so I
think changing to zero would be a mistake at this point.

AIUI this patch results in no functional change for ARM, in that dom0
previously saw:
        d->nr_pirqs = nr_static_irqs + extra_dom0_irqs;
where nr_static_irqs == NR_IRQS on ARM where now it sees:

When extra_dom0_irqs > 0
        nr_static_irqs + extra_dom0_irqs
which is the same as before. Or when extra_dom0_irqs:
==   NR_IRQS
==   nr_static_irqs + 0
i.e. no change.

Oh, actually extra_dom0_irqs has changed from a default of 256 to 0, I
don't think NR_IRQS(1024) + 256 made much sense on ARM (which is limited
to 1020 IRQs in h/w anyway), so I don't consider that a problem.

If that's all correct then: 
        Acked-by: Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@xxxxxxxxxx>

Also Ack with my REST maintainer hat on for the general principal/common
