The doorbell line will only show up in /proc/interrupt if CPU_FTR_DBELL
is set and the total interrupt count in /proc/stat will be unaffected
if we don't have doorbells (+ 0 doorbells). It still builds fine without

Adding #ifdefs would save one per cpu integer in irq_stat. I can throw
together a v2 patch with them in place.
