So I guess you have the A9 external nIRQ hooked up to another
controller? Why can't the 0-31 interrupts get mapped to after the gic
interrupts? Ultimately we want h/w irq numbers completely decoupled from
linux irq numbers. So you will want to put that controller in devicetree
and have an DT init function for it as well.

In anycase, there's a simple solution. You just need a call to
irq_alloc_descs to reserve the first 32 interrupts before calling
of_irq_init.
