It's better than device tree changes but I'm not convinced it's worthwhile
just to suppress some simulator warnings. If the warnings really bother you,
you can use pic-no-reset in the device tree (assuming this isn't some new chip
that you want to make sure doesn't fall over when the usual mpic init happens)
and/or convince the hardware people to make the interface properly
discoverable including discontiguous regions (if there *is* some new chip I
haven't heard about).
