Looks like repeatedly binding same fd to multiple gsi's with irqfd can
use up a ton of kernel memory for irqfd structures.

A simple fix is to allow each fd to only trigger one gsi: triggering a
srorm of interrupts in guest is likely useless anyway, and we can do it
by binding a single gsi to many interrupts if we really want to.

Applied and queued, thanks.
I'm guessing we need this for 2.6.32 stable and 2.6.33 as well?

That's what 'queued' means.
