No it's not, look again.

#define irq_alloc_descs_from(from, cnt, node) \
irq_alloc_descs(-1, from, cnt, node)

You're confusing hardware interrupt numbers and virtual interrupt
numbers. My comment is about irq_create_mapping_many(), which returns
virtual interrupt numbers.

As I said I don't think there is a requirement that the virtual
interrupt numbers are also a power-of-2 naturally aligned block, but we
should allocate them as one anyway, to avoid any issues in future.

And so this API, which returns virtual interrupt numbers, must satisfy
that specification.

Because irq_domain_legacy_revmap() only allocates a single interrupt
number.

I agree, that would be a bug. But disposing of someone elses mapping is
not OK.

Perhaps, but that is a bug that needs to be fixed in the code that
forgets to dispose of the mapping.
