With this applied, I get the following build error:

drivers/of/Kconfig:69:error: recursive dependency detected!
drivers/of/Kconfig:69:	symbol OF_IRQ depends on IRQ_DOMAIN
kernel/irq/Kconfig:59:	symbol IRQ_DOMAIN is selected by REGMAP
drivers/base/regmap/Kconfig:7:	symbol REGMAP default is visible depending on REGMAP_I2C
drivers/base/regmap/Kconfig:20:symbol REGMAP_I2C is selected by TYPEC_STUSB160X

drivers/net/ethernet/arc/Kconfig:19:	symbol ARC_EMAC_CORE is selected by ARC_EMAC
drivers/net/ethernet/arc/Kconfig:25:	symbol ARC_EMAC depends on OF_IRQ
For a resolution refer to Documentation/kbuild/kconfig-language.rst
subsection "Kconfig recursive dependency limitations"

So I can't take it as-is :(
