Probably I'm just misguided.

As I (mis)read the source, the two code fragments generated by the  
invocations of
will both have num=0. So the INTRSTUB macro will generate code  
equivalent to
   register struct intr_source *r14 = curcpu()->ci_isources[0];

Yes, but they are "passed" r14.
Now, the ioapic_mask macro will do something like
   register struct pic *rdi = r14->is_pic;
   register int rsi = r14->is_pin;
But which PIC will rdi point to?
