ok. It means it is currently deprecated.
I just wanted to be sure that I understand it correctly.

I have changed my drivers not to use this function and using resources as
we discussed.

btw: I have sent one email to device-tree ML about describing missing
connection between cpu and the first interrupt controller.
Can you please look at it and comment it?
