I looked and I could not locate it written down either. I think Grant is
in Santa Rosa this week, I'll ask him to clarify.

What I meant that interrupt binding allows specifying the trigger and
you have separate binding for trigger here. It would be nice to have
just one (the standard interrupt binding).

As I mentioned I'll try to get clarification on this.

This is a misconception: device tree bindings are supposed to form ABI
(and the goal to eventually separate them from the kernel) and so we
need to support old bindings in new kernels.

Thanks.
