#define irq_alloc_desc(node)

So instead of handing in node 0 you hand in node -1 which is NUMA_NO_NODE

The x86 core cares not at all about interrupt chips which are created in a
driver and not connected to an actual apic/ioapic/msi interrupt. This
interrupt chip is its own thing as we have others in GPIO etc.

And why so? Surely not because you set irq_chip_data. That's really no
explanation at all.

Curing the symptom is never a good approach.
