I guess I was thinking this is something that might help others
to build more machines into one defconfig. If that's not the case,
sure these can be kept omap specific.

After a quick browsing of the entry-macro.S files, looks like
there's some similar ifdeffery for get_irqnr_* macros that just might
be possible to clear out with asm_irq_base and asm_irq_flags:


Maybe let's wait a while to see if there are other use cases,
if not, I'll make them omap specific.
