We have the exact same thing on the arm64 side, and we don't need of
this to be arch specific:

- The MADT table describes the root interrupt controller, and it is
probed via IRQCHIP_ACPI_DECLARE().

- Each children controller is declared in ACPI as a *device*, and is
both an interrupt producer and an interrupt consumer. Normal probe
deferral rules apply. See irq-mbigen.c for an example of how this is
done.

With that, you can remove all the probing order management from your
arch code and let the standard Linux driver model take over.
