Right, I did ponder the idea of a whole programmatic
"request_context_irq" hook that would allow registering the handler for
both interrupts with the appropriate context bank and instance data, but
since all interrupts are currently unexpected it seems somewhat hard to
justify the extra complexity. Obviously we can revisit this in future if
you want to start actually doing something with faults like the qcom GPU
folks do.
