Thanks for the info.

Option 3 - remove l2-intc and drop back to polling the i2c-brcmstb
blocks (which the driver supports anyway).
HDMI I2C generally isn't heavily used once displays are connected, so
I'd be OK with that.

(We can keep the l2-intc that handles CEC and HPD as that is on a
unique GIC interrupt).
