irq: Do not attempt to create subdirectories if /proc/irq/<irq> failed

If a parent directory (ie /proc/irq/<irq>) could not be created
we should not attempt to create subdirectories. Otherwise it
would lead that "smp_affinity" and "spurious" entries are may be
registered under /proc root instead of a proper place.
