No, no DMI rules please, they are more pain than anything.

This is simply kicking the can down the road.

Or just solve the issue of intermixing Interrupt() with GpioInt(). We
have similar issue with i2c and spi, but we sidestep that there as we
only parse the first interrupt and do not give option of fetching 2nd,
3rd, etc. Maybe we should only GpioInt parsing for the first interrupt
in platform_get_irq() as well for the first iteration and then see if
we need to improve it if we see devices with multiple interrupts.

Thanks,
Dmitry
