This logic makes zero difference to Linux, and I do not see what
you gain by having two code paths with separate list of unusable
interrupts. And why on Earth would a "Soc product integration
developer" have any business to mess with this driver code?
They should very much stay away from it and deal with their
precious value add.

If you want two properties or even twenty, go for it, and have fun.
Just don't make this driver even more unreadable than it already is.
Merge all these interrupts in *one* list of unusable interrupts,
and be done with it.


Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
