_On this platform_ BIOS provides a static mapping for IRQ lines (there
is no separate PIR, just IOAPIC). So, that register is initialized by
firmware. We are not suppose to touch it _on this platform_.

"Besides that" part means "we have a second circumstance we have to
follow to avoid breaking working platforms".
The old code, if you look into patch, uses dev->irq as a predefined
constant, which is not in case of dynamic allocation, so, if we respect
return value from mp_map_gsi_to_irq() we may not use dev->irq as
_source_ of IRQ mapping anymore.
I didn't check if we can do things in reversed order than I have done,
i.e. apply part 2 as separate change and then respect the return value.
It looks like it may be done in this way.
However, the patch is applied and I don't see any strong reason
toÂrevert it and bring again as a set of two patches. Thanks for your
