The problem is that 'interrupt-map' defines an interrupt mapping
between an input and an output, and that mentioning the GIC in such a
table will only result in your EXTI to be bypassed.

'interrupt-map' really is a dispatch table for targeting an interrupt
controller (or multiple controllers, even), but really isn't the
correct tool to carry configuration informations to an interrupt
controller driver.

A possible solution would be to have:

- A set of standard 'interrupts' properties describing the output
signals
- A set of properties describing the input to output mapping (if
relevant) and additional configuration information that for the
interrupt controller driver.
