Import many updates from i386's i8259.c, especially genirq transitions.

Shouldn't we try to share i8259.c over the various architectures that
use this controller?  With the generic hardirq framework that should be
possible.

The "i8259" should be under "ISA" or "EISA" Kconfig option.

   It's not really bus specific actually. I'm sure MCA systems had it as well.
