NAK to this patch.

The real question is - if CPU0 is the CPU going offline, why is it
still receiving _any_ interrupts - all interrupts should be migrated
off it, including the chained interrupts.

Sounds like there's a bug in the migration code which needs further
investigation, rather than hacking around the problem by introducing
lots of driver code.
