It rejects IRQ 0 intentionally. And if 0 is returned, there
will now be no message printed by the platform code.

As I recall, I looked for a *long* time to see whether IRQ 0
was a valid IRQ number in Linux. One reason I even questioned
it is that NO_IRQ is defined with value 0 on some architectures
(though not for Arm). I even asked Rob Herring about privately
it a few years back and he suggested I shouldn't allow 0.

Yes, it *looked* like IRQ 0 could be a valid return. But I
decided it was safer to just reject it, on the assumption
that it's unlikely to be returned (I don't believe it is
or ever will be used as the IRQ for SMP2P).

If you are certain it's valid, and should be allowed, I
have no objection to changing that "<=" to be "<".


PS A quick search found this oldie:
