In two of the three SoCs I need to fix they are. I've just realized that in
the last one the interrupts are in two contiguous blocks in two different
parents. I will thus need at least a list of <parent-phandle base count>. Our
standard interrupt bindings don't seem to support multiple parents, is that
something that we want to fix or should I go for custom bindings ?
