With regards to the interrupts - I don't really have a concept of how
those will work, since there isn't a processor for those lines to
interrupt. So while there is this for the 7514:

interrupts = <18 21 16>;
interrupt-names = "ptp_rdy", "xtr", "fdma";

it seems like there isn't anything to add there.

That is, unless there's something deeper that is going on that I don't
fully understand yet. It wouldn't be the first time and, realistically,
won't be the last. I'll copy the 7514 for now, as I plan to send out an
RFC shortly with all these updates.
