We already have generic bindings for i2c devices interrupt line, along
with trigger type. We also have standard bindings for gpios, with the
polarity. Interrupts are also parsed by the I2C core. There is no need
to invent your own bindings.

For function parameters I wonder if they should not be modelled as
subnodes with "reg" representing function number.
