Hi Lukas,

You sent this patch twice. Is there any difference between the two?

NIT:  The correct term is Interrupt Lines.

This is common code, so we should also take into account the other GIC 
versions we support.

Your commit message should explain why reducing to 992 Interrupts lines 
is fine. How about the following commit title and message?

"xen/arm: Cap the number interrupts of lines for dom0

Dom0 vGIC will use the same number interrupt lines as the hardware GIC. 
While the hardware GIC can support up to 1019 interrupt lines, the vGIC 
is only supporting up to 992 interrupt lines.

This means Xen will not be able to boot on platform where the hardware 
GIC supports more the 992 interrupt lines.

While it would make sense to increase the limits in the vGICs, this is 
not trivial because of the design choices.

At the moment, only models seem to report the maximum of interrupt 
lines. They also don't have any interrupt wired above the 992 limits.
So this would be fine to cap the interrupt for Dom0 to 992 lines.
