It appears to me that it is safe to call __unbind_from_irq() after
xen_irq_info_common_setup() fails, but *not* if the latter hasn't been
called at all.  In that case the IRQ type will still be set to
IRQT_UNBOUND and this will trigger the BUG_ON() in __unbind_from_irq().

If nvec > 1, and xen_irq_info_pirq_setup() fails for i != nvec - 1,
then we reach here without having called xen_irq_info_common_setup()
for all these IRQs.

In that case, I think we will still want to call xen_free_irq() for all
IRQs.  So maybe the fix would be to remove the BUG_ON() in
__unbind_from_irq()?
