In the current implementation we allocate a pool of 
FSL_MC_IRQ_POOL_MAX_TOTAL_IRQS (= 256) no mater what total_irq_count is.
I think this is enough for our current scenarios, but if in the future 
we ever hit this limit we can think of a mechanism along the lines of 
your example. Adding another chunk of irqs to the pool seems to me like 
a good idea in the future.
