A single nop should be fine, since gas will complain if it tries to move
the IP backwards.  (Also I'd vote for normal indentation instead of the
"assembler magic at 4 spaces" thing.)

.align 8
SYM_CODE_START(irq_entries_start)
	vector = FIRST_EXTERNAL_VECTOR
	.rept (FIRST_SYSTEM_VECTOR - FIRST_EXTERNAL_VECTOR)
		pos = .
		UNWIND_HINT_IRET_REGS
		.byte	0x6a, vector
		jmp	asm_common_interrupt
		nop
		.  = pos + 8
		vector = vector + 1
	.endr
SYM_CODE_END(irq_entries_start)
