At least this is my understanding on how it _should_ be.

Precisely!

The problem is that platform_get_irq_optional() doesn't follow above mentioned
logic and needs to be fixed. While trying to fix that it appears that it's not
an simple and 5 minutes task since it needs a revisiting of all callers first
followed by rectifying the API itself.
