for the record as discussed with Grant I'm preparing to add a new property
to handle interrupts so you will never have to use "interrupt-parent" any more
and just do this

interrupt-lines = <&aic 5 0 &pioA 4>

it will be more like gpio and will allow to have irq from different
interrupt-parent in the same node

but wait a few I'll be really back next week as I'm half off this week

Best Regards,
J.
