I suspect we'd need to somehow tie it into qemu_irq where both handlers
and notifiers are allocated so we don't really care the underlying
implementation.  Something like qemu_add_irq_eoi_notifier(qemu_irq
irq, ...).  It's another mess like adding the PCIBus interrupt line to
gsi effort though.  Thanks,
