Oh, actually, reading my own patch:

"ARM defines NO_IRQ to -1, but OF code relies on IRQ domains support,
which returns correct ('0') value in 'no irq' case. So everything
should be fine."


I forgot that on ARM we use IRQ domains, so ARM should be OK.

Do you really see any breakage, and if so, what board?
