Quite a lot actually and I don't think it's solvable before 2.5.
It's a bit unfortunate that a architecture specific structure is in a
general header. post_irq doesn't exist anymore (which had the pt_regs
pointer), the only other solution would be to rename hw_interrupt_type
and use a private version.
