Subject: [PATCH 4/4] Documentation: Update IRQ-domain.txt to document irq_domain_mapping

irq_domain_mapping is a rather useful tool to understand how IRqs
are mapped in irqdomains, and yet it is not documented anywhere.
Let's address this.

+=== Debugging ===
+
+If you switch on CONFIG_IRQ_DOMAIN_DEBUG (which depends on
+CONFIG_IRQ_DOMAIN and CONFIG_DEBUG_FS), you will find a new file in
+your debugfs mount point, called irq_domain_mapping. This file
+contains a live snapshot of all the IRQ domains in the system:

+are build out of a stack of three domain, each level performing a
