Could it be possible to use "interrupts" and "interrupt-names" to identify
assigned banked & unbanked IRQs?

For example DM646x (http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/sprueq8a/sprueq8a.pdf):

interrupts = <48 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<49 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<50 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<51 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<52 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<53 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<54 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<55 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<56 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<57 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<58 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>;
interrupt-names = "gpio0", "gpio1", "gpio2", "gpio3", "gpio4", "gpio5", "gpio6", "gpio7", "bank0", "bank1", "bank2";

For example OMAP-L138 (http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/spruh77a/spruh77a.pdf):

interrupts = <42 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<43 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<44 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<45 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<46 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<47 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<48 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<49 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>,
<50 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_BOTH>;

interrupt-names = "bank0", "bank1", "bank2", "bank3", "bank4", "bank5", "bank6", "bank7", "bank8";

For example Keystone 66AK2E05/02
(http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/sprs865a/sprs865a.pdf and http://www.ti.com/lit/ug/sprugv1/sprugv1.pdf):

interrupts = <GIC_SPI 120 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>,
<GIC_SPI 121 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>,
[..]
<GIC_SPI 150 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>,
<GIC_SPI 151 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;


interrupt-names = "gpio0", "gpio1", [...], "gpio30", "gpio31";

So then, following properties would not be needed at all, because all inf. can be
taken from interrupt's properties:
+- ti,davinci-gpio-irq-base: Base from where GPIO interrupt numbering starts.
+- ti,davinci-gpio-unbanked: The number of GPIOs that have an individual interrupt line to processor.

It should work good if Davinci-gpio driver will be converted to use
linear IRQ domains for banked irqs.
