SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] MIPS: bmips: Add bcm63168-l1 interrupt controller

Well, that's what I get for waiting for -rc1, I also planned to submit
irqchip drivers[1] for bcm63xx/bmips for the next window ;p.

Usually I would go by which SoC introduced it, and AFAICT tell BCM6358
was the first with per-CPU irq blocks, but since I don't see anything
preventing it to be used with the older, single thread SoCs, the
driver/binding would even support BCM6345's one.

Which, in this case, has 32 incoming IRQ lines.

It's a bit strange using the newer chip name for older chips, so I
suggest using brcm,bcm6345-l1-intc or brcm,bcm6358-l1-intc (I went
with bcm6345-periph-intc, to avoid the l1/l2 discussion).

Also I'm not sure whether BCM63168 or BCM63268 is the right name for
the family, as Broadcom seems to use the latter in their LDKs.

Furthermore, it's always good to specify that it should contain a
brcm,bcm<soc>-l1-intc, in case one ever needs to tell them apart.
