Hi Nishant,

I don't understand why the interrupt is 'required'.  Also note you should
never be adding required properties to an existing binding.  It's possible
someone already used the binding as it stands and shipped a board with
it burnt in a firmware. (bit unlikely but you never know!)

Why?  Device works fine without one being supplied. 
It's not uncommon on embedded boards to not wire up interrupts
due to a lack of pins and just rely on polling.
