Actually, in smp_event_check_interrupt(), irq_cpustat isn't being used
so far, so placing the new field there wouldn't be a definite cache hit.
Instead (if that has to remain, which I doubt) co-locating it with
__irq_regs would help here.

Otoh it seems like I will should add irq_enter()/irq_exit() now that the
function calls something non-trivial...
