Then this whole driver is non-functional until the last patch that
comes with the PRU-specific "value-add".

The two level routing has to be part of this (or another) irqchip
driver (specially given that it appears to me like another set of
crossbar). There should only be a *single* binding for all interrupts,
including those targeting the PRU (you seem to have two).

And the non-CPU interrupt code has to be in its own patch, because
it is pretty borderline anyway (I'm still not completely convinced
this is Linux's job).
