I wonder why Grant seems to be happier with that solution than with my
original proposal. That new solution does essentially the same thing.
One of the main issues raised during review of my original proposal was
that it had to modify the core, but this new solution does that as well.

Another thing that people weren't happy about was that my solution was
more intrusive because it required a bunch of changes to the of_irq_*()
helpers to make them propagate a proper error code. The new solution
doesn't do that, but instead works around the lack of proper error
propagation by trying to find an IRQ domain (which the of_irq_*()
helpers will do anyway).
