irqchip/irq-bcm7038-l1: Restrict affinity setting to MIPS

Only MIPS based platforms using this interrupt controller as first level
interrupt controller can actually change the affinity of interrupts by
re-programming the affinity mask of the interrupt controller and use
another word group to have another CPU process the interrupt.

When this interrupt is used as a second level interrupt controller on
ARM/ARM64 there is no way to change the interrupt affinity. This fixes a
NULL pointer de-reference while trying to change the affinity since
there is only a single word group in that case, and we would have been
overruning the intc->cpus[] array.
