That is at least my view of the situation, sorry for the mixed messages
you have been getting. Marc, Rob, do you agree with my finding?

If we want to allow having both interrupt-map and interrupt-controller
in the same node, we need to rewrite both the irq parsing function and
have extend the DT binding for the interrupt-map to explain what we
actually expect to happen in that case. At the moment, we walk up the
tree until we find either an interrupt-map or an interrupt-controller
property, and use that to map the interrupt number. If we find an
interrupt-controller, we ignore the interrupt-map.
