Looks like IRQ 31 is assigned to timer 3, even without the patch! I wonder who wrote the number 31. But the manual says 
that it is zero by default.

I think we should check whether the timer has been allocated an IRQ before proceeding to assign one to it.
Here is a patch that does this.

Yinghai, could you please apply this on top of my patch and check ?
