It looks like in further tests, there may be more interrupts like irq
10 which are not documented properly and if mapped results in the
feature not working. It does seem that we might need more detailed
validation as this seems to have skipped our "non-OS validation" flow
unfortunately. we are in discussion with silicon folks on these
"undocumented behavior" we are discovering :(.

I suggest holding the series till we have done complete validation of
the same and explanation for the behavior we see.
