I think you're missing something here.  Any particular platform will
generally only wire either the common interrupt, or the individual
interrupts.  Very few, if any, will wire both.

It's just like stuff such as MMCI and the UARTs.  They have a combined
interrupt out, and individual interrupt outs.  However, they're all
written for the combined interrupt only, because practically no one
uses the individal interrupts.
