That's not looking right: update_intremap_entry_from_ioapic() is
very well doing the necessary allocation if none happened at
boot, or at least the code to do so is there. If that one has a bug,
we should aim at fixing it instead of working around the issue. Did
you check that this

    offset = *index;
    if ( offset >= INTREMAP_ENTRIES )
        offset = alloc_intremap_entry(iommu->seg, req_id, 1);
        if ( offset >= INTREMAP_ENTRIES )

in update_intremap_entry_from_ioapic() doesn't take effect for

Also conceptually I don't see why we would want to waste IRTEs
for IO-APIC pins that likely will never get used.

That one is certainly going to be helpful going forward, but you
should clearly use 'V' as the key just like VT-d does instead of
occupying yet another one.
