No, that "DTE_IRQ_TABLE_LEN" is not the size shift - it's the size
shift value in that DTE field, which is shifted up by 1.

That's why the current code does that

   #define DTE_IRQ_TABLE_LEN       (9ULL << 1)


Which was why I suggested that new #define that is the *actual* shift
value, and then the DTE thing and the MAX_IRQS_PER_TABLE values would
depend on that.
