Subject: [PATCH] of/irq: lookup 'interrupts-extended' property first

In case the Device Tree blob passed by the boot agent supplies both an
'interrupts-extended' and an 'interrupts' property in order to allow for
older kernels to be usable, prefer the new-style 'interrupts-extended'
property which convey a lot more information.

This allows us to have bootloaders willingly maintaining backwards
compatibility with older kernels without entirely deprecating the
'interrupts' property (although that is a clear violation of the binding
specified at
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/interrupt-controller/interrupts.txt)
