I know it's the ticker, but the point was - we don't use tickers here
for none of other platforms.

Mentioned grep brings only one result:
arch/powerpc/platforms/powermac/pic.c: * cases where the APPL,interrupts property is completely

so hardly an argument for backwards consistency, within the kernel.

On the other hand, some DTs for iPhones mention "apple", not APPL:
https://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/D211AP/Device_Tree
https://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/D331AP/Device_Tree
https://gist.github.com/bazad/1faef1a6fe396b820a43170b43e38be1

Although I am not sure how reliable are the sources.

Hectore mention old PowerPC Apple sources were using the APPL, but it
seems they did not end up here. What would be the point to stick to the
old prefix if we cannot find it?

Maybe they exists in other systems? I could not find such in latest
FreeBSD, but there were not many DTSes inside.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
