I'm really not keen on this. The whole "default domain" made sense at a
distant point in time (when irqdomains were new and platform code was
blissfully ignoring it), but it really looks like a sore spot in the
hierarchy code, which assumes that you always know what you're building
your hierarchy on top of.

It also create a small issue in the sense that you can create a root
domain using irq_domain_create_hierarchy() by passing NULL as the
parent. With this patch, the new domain now points to the default one,
with unexpected consequences.

So let's come back to first principles: How comes you can't obtain the
parent domain at creation time? Because I'd rather give you a way to
retrieve it instead if this.
