AFAIK, we don't have scripts in RISC-V world that depend on
/proc/interrupts content. May be in future such scripts will show up.

For system with multiple PLICs, we are seeing same "SiFive PLIC"
string for all PLIC interrupts in "cat /proc/interrupts". I am trying to
assign different string based on PLIC instance. This is similar to
what GICv2 driver is doing (e.g. GIC-0, GIC-1, ... in /proc/interrupts).

Is there a better way to do this ?

I just want to differentiate which interrupt belongs to which PLIC
Instance in /proc/interrupts. I can take a different approach if you
suggest.
