It might make more sense to describe the interrupt on the channel
subnode. It makes it far clearer which channel has which interrupt.

It would be nice to define the list once:

- clocks: A list of phandle + clock-specifier pairs, one for each entry
  in clock-names.
- clock-names: Should contain "fck" for the functional clock.

This is implied by the presence of a subnode. Either remove this or the
subnodes.

This feels like a leak of Linux internals. Why do you need this?

Aaargh. Use the _real_ channel IDs for the reg proeprties and get rid of
the mask. It's pointlessly confusing.
