I was actually confused here and mixed up a few things: I thought this
was about whether to use vmap stacks unconditionally, and this is in
fact not even an architecture specific decision, it's a global option as you
are probably aware.

Since one can still turn off VMAP_STACK for normal thread stacks,
it doesn't make much of a difference whether one can do the same for
IRQ stacks. Please just ignore what I said above. I see you already
sent a modified v3, and I think either way is fine, feel free to revert back
to this method if it makes life easier.
