We should update arm-smmu.c as well.

Can you justify the need for this? If we actually need to disable
interrupts, then I'd like to understand why so that we can make sure we
get the ordering right with respect to disabling the device. Also, do we
need to clear the MSI registers too?

My understanding is that kexec will mask irqs at the GIC, so there's not
actually an issue here.
