The irq is meaningless when using ioapic mode, it is just the value
that would have been used when legacy pic mode. The interrupts
are not shared, they are handled on different lines and/or at
a different ioapic.
I should probably remove the irq part from the output altogether,
people seem to find it confusing (and I can see why).
