Turns out I have to enable IRQ_DOMAIN for x86 because the TI TWL4030
driver needs it.  I do need to apply this patch.  Until something
better can be implemented, can I change ioapic_add_ofnode() so that it
allocates all irq_descs immediately.  It's not ideal, but every other
approach I've looked at results in nasty hacks.

Looking at the ioapic code, it appears to handle preallocated
irq_descs gracefully.

Does adding this loop help (apologies if it is whitespace damaged, I
cut&paste it):
