Here is the example of the information printed:
[    0.000000] GICv2m: range[0xe1180000:0xe1181000], SPI[64:320]

Basically, the v2m is just an extension of the GIC. Here, we are 
printing the memory range that it is covering, which can be used to 
identify different V2m frame and the associate interrupt range (SPI). 
The node name is not really providing any values. So, we are removing it.
