the bridge irq domain could be stacked on different underlying irq domains
for different platforms (HUB is IP27, HEART for IP30 and BEDROCK for IP35).
And my idea was to set a irq default domain in the IP27/IP30/IP35 platform
code so that bridge code will pick up the correct underlying irq domain.
As there is no device tree I haven't found an already implemented other way.
Right now I have two idea to solve my problem without this patch:

- implement a SGI specific helper for getting the underlying irq domain
- use a helper function to read irq_default_domain

What do you prefer ? Or do you see something else ?

Thomas.
