The i386 and x86_64 versions of this return -ENOSPC rather than -1.  Perhaps
we should do the same?

There are a couple of ia64 specific uses of assign_irq_vector in hp/sim/simeth.c
and hp/sim/simserial.c that don't check the return value ... if you make this
change, then they need to check for failure too.
