It's currently broken as it uses an incorrect shift, it tries
to use the slot number but uses the top bits of the bus number

Note: Neither implementation matches what OpenBIOS ends up putting
in the device-tree either, which will have to be fixed separately.

This is not quite correct for modelling a real Mac since Apple
tend to tie all 4 interrupt lines of a slot together and have
separate interrupts for every slot and every motherboard devices
going straight to the PIC but we'll sort that out later.

This needs a corresponding fix in OpenBIOS but this has to be
committed first for that. As this is already broken making this change
should not make things worse as they are now. Could we get this in now
as a bugfix commit?

Applied to ppc-for-2.8.

Is this going in for 2.8? If so, I'll need to apply the corresponding
patch to OpenBIOS to match and also do a PPC testing cycle to make sure
that there are no regressions on other OSs. Plus it would be useful to
get both pull requests in close proximity as this will break bisection.

(Adding BenH as these are his patches I just apparently forgot the cc.)

I'd appreciate if this could get in 2.8. As this is a bugfix this should be OK during the freeze. Likely there will be more rc cycles where it could be reverted if found to cause problems. But since it's already broken, applying this patch to QEMU should not break it more and adding the fix on the OpenBIOS side (patch 4/4) would complete the fix and may actually make it work. This should only affect mac99 and this one patch is independent from the other three I've sent to OpenBIOS so this could be applied independently to get at least the interrupts fixed if you can't test and apply the other three until the next pull.
