Well, the existing code already did that ;-)

Yes, that did leave a bit of a bad taste, I guess in the back of my mind
I had the (erroneous?) thought that this non-device-tree code would be
going away soon.

However, for the purpose of enabling sparse irqs, we don't actually need
to mess with the IRQ defines so I'll follow up with an alternative patch
which leaves them alone...
