Gregory's additions to the binding are correct and comply with how the
'interrupts-extended' property is meant to be used. FYI, this is
required because most wake-up capable HW on brcmstb chips have N
interrupts feeding to a GIC, but their wake-up interrupt(s) feed to an
always-on interrupt controller. With the 'interrupts' +
'interrupt-parent' property, you can "cross" multiple interrupt domains.

The precedence and rules for interpreting the "legacy" interrupts
property vs. interrupts-extended is documented in the tree.
