Hmm, I am 99% sure that for the A3720 platform this ABI change would not
affect anybody. And it does make the driver's irq names confusing.
Can't we really do anything here?

Note that there were suggestions from some people to completely remove
this driver due to the many problems it has which Pali is trying to
solve. But if the driver was removed and then later introduced again
without these problems, the new version would use the "advk-INT" IRQ
name...
