Ah, right. We have ways to solve this kind of problem without DT
(cough... ACPI cough...), but this requires the bridge code to at least
know *something* about the underlying domain (see the use of struct
fwnode in the ACPI IORT code, and the way it uses the routing
informations to build and retrieve fwnodes that are used to match
irq domains).

Do you have such firmware tables that could be used to store sideband
data and allow the bridge code to retrieve the corresponding pointer? I
appreciate this could be quite a lot of work for a platform that has
little future...

Well, short of doing the above, I'd rather have something in the common
code that allows the default domain to be retrieved. How about the
patch below?

Thanks,

M.

Subject: [PATCH] irqdomain: Allow the default irq domain to be retrieved

The default irq domain allows legacy code to create irqdomain
mappings without having to track the domain it is allocating
from. Setting the default domain is a one shot, fire and forget
operation, and no effort was made to be able to retrieve this
information at a later point in time.

Newer irqdomain APIs (the hierarchical stuff) relies on both
the irqchip code to track the irqdomain it is allocating from,
as well as some form of firmware abstraction to easily identify
which piece of HW maps to which irq domain (DT, ACPI).

For systems without such firmware (or legacy platform that are
getting dragged into the 21st century), things are a bit harder.
For these cases (and these cases only!), let's provide a way
to retrieve the default domain, allowing the use of the v2 API
without having to resort to platform-specific hacks.
