The ppc64 port has an array of virtual irq's which is used to index to the
real irq. In the interests of easy debugging (eg when drivers print out their
irq number) the virtual irq is kept identical to the actual whenever possible.

arch/ppc64/prom.c sets up the map (virt_irq_to_real_map), and
arch/ppc64/xics.c (the interrupt controller) uses it.
