Then shouldn't you have up to 8 int specifiers in 'interrupts' property?

So do you actually need to know how many channels? We don't typically
put into DT what interrupt lines are actually connected. We assume the
interrupt connections in DT are correct.

Also, if 'interrupts' listed all the muxed output connections, then
you could get the same information from there.
