[PATCH] powerpc/xive: Fix unsigned comparison with less than zero

The return from the call to irq_domain_alloc_irqs() is int, it can be
a negative error code, however this is being assigned to an unsigned
int variable 'irq', this may lead to invalid if statement detection,
so that kfree execution is invalid. So making 'irq' an int.

Clean up the following coccicheck warning:

./arch/powerpc/sysdev/xive/common.c:1157:6-14: WARNING: Unsigned
expression compared with zero: xid -> irq < 0.
