The nominal configuration on 7211 is to have all interrupts go through
the ARM GIC. It is possible however, to fallback to the legacy 2836 mode
whereby the root interrupt controller for peripheral interrupts is this
ARMCTL IC. There is a mux that the firmware can control which will
dictate which root interrupt controller is used for peripherals.

I have used this mostly for silicon verification and since those are
fairly harmless patches, just decided to send them out to avoid
maintaining them out of tree.

We have a plan to use those as an "alternate" interrupt domain for low
power modes and use the fact that peripheral interrupts could be active
in both domains (GIC and ARMCTRL IC) to help support configuring and
identifying wake-up sources fro m within Linux.

Thanks!

Good idea, will do.
