Oh that's too diplomatic :) How about something like this instead:

"Device tree is currently badly broken where in order to support
interrupts from multiple interrupt controllers the device needs
to do the opposite of describing hardware, and lie about itself
being an interrupt controller to use the interrupt-map property."

Anyways, gave this series a try, and the interrupts-extended binding
works for me for the multiple interrupt controllers issue :)
