I can split the initialized bit. If I remove it from this commit, it can
break the git bisect. That's why, I folded it into this review. I
briefly mentioned about it in the cover letter. It might not be quiet

I'm directing all IRQs to acpi_irq_pci_sharing_penalty function.
acpi_irq_pci_sharing_penalty checks for the possible values here from

* penalize the IRQs PCI might use, but not as severely.
for (i = 0; i < link->irq.possible_count; i++)
if (link->irq.possible[i] == irq)

It does fix the PCI_USING penalty assignment.

if (link-> && link-> == irq)

If we drop this patch, then we need
[PATCH V3 1/3] ACPI, PCI IRQ: add PCI_USING penalty for ISA interrupts

as somebody needs to increment the penalty with PCI_USING when IRQ is assigned
for a given ISA IRQ.

We might as well take [PATCH V4 1/3], [PATCH V4 2/3] and [PATCH V3 1/3]
for this regression.
