Here's all the interrupts on the PL310:

DECERRINTR Decode error received on master ports from L3
SLVERRINTR Slave error received on master ports from L3
ERRRDINTR Error on L2 data RAM read
ERRRTINTR Error on L2 tag RAM read
ERRWDINTR Error on L2 data RAM write
ERRWTINTR Error on L2 tag RAM write
PARRDINTR Parity error on L2 data RAM read
PARRTINTR Parity error on L2 tag RAM read
ECNTRINTR Event Counter Overflow/Increment
L2CCINTR L2CC Combined Interrupt Output

It's likely that you would want to split these to different drivers.
EDAC for parity/bus errors and hw-events for event counters, for example.
