Either way probably works correctly, but Samuel's approach is more
readable IMO. It is far easier to reason about a high-level feature
(GENERIC_IRQ_IPI) than an implementation detail (IRQ_DOMAIN_HIERARCHY).

If you really want to save a handful of bytes, you can make the
callbacks conditional on GENERIC_IRQ_IPI, and be done with it. But
this can come as an additional patch.

Thanks,

M.
