I think this is a leftover from Xen-2. For xen2, a
pci_intr_map() function, which, among other things, did the
interrupt routing and wrote the result to PCI_INTERRUPT_REG (or maybe it
did fake the PCI_INTERRUPT_REG, as all this did go through hypercalls).

I think it's not needed any more with Xen-3.
