I think you've answered your own question ;) We already have the
infrastructure for defining type/sub-type and it allows us to
categorize and group interrupt types together consistent with how we do
for regions, so what's the overhead in this approach? Otherwise we
tend to have an ad-hoc list. We can't say with absolute certainty that
we won't have additional GFX related IRQs. Thanks,

Alex
