Given that we can't target interrupts correctly without this patch, and
that the GIC in a HiP04 system can't claim compatibility with any other
GIC, I'd call this a major difference.

If the function is called gic_is_standard, then the only thing we should
know here is whether the GIC follows the GIC standard, not how it
differs from the standard.
Please rename this function to something like gicd_has_16_bit_targets or
anything else that clearly defines what you're ttrying to derive from
