On a fully DT-ified platform, using non-legacy irqdomains, virtual
interrupts
are allocated as a "random" number, depending on the order of
allocation,
and on demand.

The first_irq hack in irq_domain_add_simple() is just a way to still
allocate
descriptors upfront (and I wish we could drop it...).

If you have legacy code that "knows" about the relationship between
Linux's
virtual interrupt and the hwirq (that is only meaningful to the
interrupt
controller), you're screwed, and need to stick to the legacy irqdomain.

It feels like the MIPS code is squarely in the latter case, so I guess
this
patch is probably the wrong thing to do for this architecture.

Thanks,

M.
