Part of the purpose behind irq_domains is to have a translator
callback that can take care of complex mappings, such as mapping each
of the GIC irq ranges onto the Linux irq space. Plus, by being based
on the DT irq specifiers and dynamically assigning the linux numbers,
the actual mapping that the kernel chooses to use shouldn't actually
have any relevance. So whether or not the driver uses an offset is 32
becomes an implementation detail.
