This should be fixed by Marc's series below, which has hit the mainline.



I've collected patches converting GIC and VIC based platforms to use the
MULTI_IRQ_HANDLER configuration option in a single branch (as they depend
on a common patch).

It also include the patch adding non-banked support to the GIC, which is
required to convert EXYNOS to MULTI_IRQ_HANDLER in a sane way (not to
mention fixing obvious bugs).

If you're happy with this, feel free to pull this branch.
