Not heavily discussed, but it was mentioned in an earlier round. If
these drivers pop up, I think we can have another function like
platform_get_irq_probe() or platform_get_irq_nowarn() that doesn't print
an error message. Then we can convert the drivers that are poking around
for interrupts to use this new function instead. It isn't the same as a
platform_get_optional_irq() API because it returns an error when the irq
isn't there or we fail to parse something, but at least the error
message is gone.
