What matters is only the difference across 2 vCPUs.
And in fact even 32 bits are probably too many, 16 or even 8 should be
enough because overflowing arb_prio is a good thing. If you have
delivered millions IRQs to VCPU0 (let's say for a day), and then switch
the interrupt to VCPU1, you don't want to the next day to have
interrupts going to VCPU1 only. A short warm-up time (a few seconds?)
is acceptable, but then you should have interrupts distributed equally
between VCPU0 and VCPU1. This can only happen if arb_prio overflows.
