SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH v2 0/5] Rework realtek-rtl IRQ driver

I don't think the IRQ routing has an off-by one error. This was chosen
by John to correspond to Realtek's own "documentation" and to
take account of the special meaning of IRQs 0, 1 for VSMP and 6 and 7
for the Realtek SoCs. In any case it would break the ABI as the meaning
of these values changes and I don't think the change in range actually
gives any additional functionality.

With regards to the RTL8390, that SoC actually has two IRQ controllers
to allow VSMP. The changes in parent routing have a good chance of breaking
VSMP on the RTL8390 targets. Did you stress test this new logic under VSMP?
