In fact it fails on the 33'rd one, and I see this:

/*
* Unlikely to have 32 resp 64 irqs sharing one line,
* but who knows.
*/
if (thread_mask == ~0UL) {
printk(KERN_ERR "%s +%d\n", __FILE__, __LINE__);
ret = -EBUSY;
goto out_mask;
}


I'm not sure why does it fail after 32 on 64 bit, but as
virtio devices aren't limited to 32 vqs it looks like we
should go back to requesting the irq only once for all vqs.

Christoph, should I just revert for now, or do you
want to look into a smaller patch for this?

Another question is looking into intx support - that
should work but it seems to be broken at the moment.
