Please note that there are HW IRQ numbers and "Virtual" IRQ numbers.
dev->irq and thus the thing that we pass into request_irq() is a
virtual IRQ thing, a "cookie".

While in device tree you see real HW IRQ numbers.

Legal VIRQ is always > 0, while HW IRQ could be >= 0.

It shouldn't be an issue to use of_irq_*() functions for these IRQs.
of_irq_*() will remap HW IRQ 0 to some other VIRQ. If it does not do
this currently, then it's a bug and should be fixed.
