I think only support fallback to GpioInt for index 0 for now is probably
the best solution. A device could have both Interrupt and GpioInt resources,
as soon as that is the case then the meaning of index becomes ambiguous.

We are already seeing something similar with mixed use of GpioInt + Gpio
resources on some devices, where we need the GpioInt for the IRQ and
the Gpio resource to toggle something else and the ACPI tables on
different devices have them in a different order, see:

I suspect that on Windows device drivers specifically specify if they want a
Gpio or a GpioInt; or in this case if they want an Interrupt or a GpioInt.
