You could have a list of <bit irq> pairs defining the mapping, for
example. But I'd encourage you to get in touch with the Freescale/NXP
folks and find out how this HW works. get_maintainers.pl gives me this:

Shawn Guo <shawnguo@kernel.org>
Tang Yuantian <Yuantian.Tang@nxp.com>
Hou Zhiqiang <Zhiqiang.Hou@nxp.com>
Madalin Bucur <madalin.bucur@nxp.com>
Minghuan Lian <Minghuan.Lian@nxp.com>
Yuantian Tang <andy.tang@nxp.com>
Yangbo Lu <yangbo.lu@nxp.com>
"Horia Geantă" <horia.geanta@nxp.com>

I suggest you spam them and find out.

Thanks,

M.
