Not just ARM:

arch/arm/include/asm/irq.h:#ifndef
NO_IRQarch/arm/include/asm/irq.h:#define NO_IRQ       ((unsigned
int)(-1))arch/microblaze/include/asm/irq.h:#define NO_IRQ
(-1)arch/mn10300/include/asm/irq.h:#define NO_IRQ
INT_MAXarch/openrisc/include/asm/irq.h:#define NO_IRQ
(-1)arch/parisc/include/asm/irq.h:#define NO_IRQ
(-1)arch/powerpc/include/asm/irq.h:#define NO_IRQ

NO_IRQ)arch/powerpc/include/asm/qe_ic.h:       if (cascade_irq !=

NO_IRQ)arch/powerpc/include/asm/qe_ic.h:       if (cascade_irq !=
NO_IRQ)arch/sparc/include/asm/irq_32.h:#define NO_IRQ
0xffffffffarch/sparc/include/asm/irq_64.h:#define NO_IRQ
0xffffffff
And it's not just definitions of NO_IRQ. These are easy to find.
On some archs (notably ARM) zero still seems to be a valid IRQ number,
e.g. IRQ_LOCOMO_KEY and IRQ_DMA0C0.

Also, UML has TIMER_IRQ being zero.

A quick grep found many more IRQ definitions being zero, but
surprisingly the few
I looked into were definitions without users (e.g. SE7343_FPGA_IRQ_MRSHPC0,
ROUTE_VIA_IRQ0 aka IRQ_MB93493_VDC_ROUTE).

Perhaps request_irq() should just reject zero to find all of them?
