Sorry about the late reply.

How about this to go with the rest of the documentation -

In the above example, the input interrupt specifier map-mask <0xff 0> applied
on the incoming interrupt specifier of the map <22 0>, <24 0>, returns the
input interrupt 22, 24 etc. The second argument being irq type is immaterial
from the map and is used from the incoming request instead. The pass-thru
specifier parses the output interrupt specifier from the rest of the unparsed
argments from the map <&intc 36 0>, <&intc 37 0> etc to return the output
interrupt 36, 37 etc.
