irqchip/mbigen: Fix the clear register offset calculation

The register array offset for clearing an interrupt is calculated by:

    offset = (hwirq - RESERVED_IRQ_PER_MBIGEN_CHIP) / 32;

This is wrong because the clear register array includes the reserved
interrupts. So the clear operation ends up in the wrong register.

This went unnoticed so far, because the hardware clears the real bit
through a timeout mechanism when the hardware is configured in debug
mode. That debug mode was enabled on early generations of the hardware, so
the problem was papered over.

On newer hardware with updated firmware the debug mode was disabled, so the
bits did not get cleared which causes the system to malfunction.

Remove the subtraction of RESERVED_IRQ_PER_MBIGEN_CHIP, so the correct
register is accessed.
