The problem is that device tree infrastructure considers 0 IRQ value as

value whereas for ACPI, 0 is a valid value. Without this change, the
problem that we

see is that the first driver using of_irq_get_xx() or its variants fails
because of 0 IRQ

number. With this change, allocated IRQ number is never 0 so it works ok.
