Why? platform_get_irq() currently just calls platform_get_irq_optional()...

That does include the IRQ0 case, right?

I completely agree, I (after thinking a bit) have no issues with that...

I don't see how it's different from the current behavior. But we can do
that as well, I just don't see whether it's really better...
