This one doesn't appear to actually be used anywhere.

The whole point of enabling SPARSE_IRQ was to eliminate a mach include
and now this adds a new one. This is not the right solution.

I think we need to remove FIQ_START from enable_fiq/disable_fiq and make
the platforms add any private offset they need. Only rpc and imx call
enable_fiq/disable_fiq. imx offset is 0, so that leaves only rpc.

The other simple solution is make fiq_start a variable.
