"interrupt-parent" is defined in the Open Firmware "interrupt mapping"
recommended practice, the same place as "interrupt-map" etc. are.

"interrupt-parent" is only meant to be used for the simple cases. It's
quite handy there. It is also required in all "interrupt-controller"
nodes that aren't the root of the interrupt tree.
