Also, the PLIC spec is now owned by RISC-V foundation (not SiFive) so
we will have to rename the driver to "irq-riscv-plic" and will have a new
generic compatible string "riscv,plic-1.0.0". One of us (me or Palmer) will
send separate patches for this renaming. I hope you will be fine with this??

Do we really need the churn of a renaming? A new compatible, and maybe
a new config option should be enough, no? What does the renaming give us?
