 <0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Aiee, killing interrupt handler!

The root cause is that some irq_chip variables, especially ia64_msi_chip,
initiate their memeber end to point to NULL. __do_IRQ doesn't check
if irq_chip->end is null and just calls it after processing the interrupt.

As irq_chip->end is called at many places, so I fix it by reinitiating
irq_chip->end to dummy_irq_chip.end, e.g., a noop function.
