Linus, I don't understand why you need the mapping upfront. I looked at
those two links and you quote gpio_to_irq() which is not required.
The mapping is created once irq_of_parse_and_map() is invoked or a
platform_device is created from the DT entry. The latter creates the
warning on my 3.13 tree:

WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 1 at drivers/of/platform.c:171

because at the time the device is created (struct resources is
populated) the gpio controller isn't probed yet.

With or without the upfront mapping, the struct irq is not present in
struct resource.
