+AD4- Do we really need that message at all?

IMHO it makes sense.

For example it was useful for me when debugging stacked interrupt
controllers setup - I got explicitly notified why this particular device
failed on probe.

Note that IRQ is a pretty specific resource due to the fact of INTC
stacking and situations when each and every INTC gets finally probed.

Still if you believe we may drop this message with no loss of usability
- I'm fine with that as well.
