Subject[PATCH] io_apic: initialize irq with -EINVAL
To catch the case where the uninitialized variable irq might be
returned. As the path that might lead to this situation can only
occur based on invalid arguments, we initialize this variable with
the value -EINVAL, so that callers are notified accordingly, and no
uninitialized value is returned.

The path that would allow to return an uninitialized value for the
variable irq would require legacy IRQs without the ALLOC flag.
