This should be a last resort solution. The irqdomain should
naturally come from the parent interrupt controller, accessible
from the device (the timer in this case) node.

Use it to for backward compatibility if you *really* must,
but this is generally a very bad idea as it allows all kind
of bizarre fallbacks and hides bugs.
