What is different between these and the normal legacy interrupts that
are normally expressed in the RC node using an interrupt map? Sorry if
I'm only showing my ignorance here, but I'd like to understand the exact
nature of the problem.

However you're going to map them, it will not be by just blindly
exporting random irqdomains from an unsuspecting interrupt controller.
Patch 5 has established that you're using "virtual wire" SPIs, so we
need to work on exposing that with the normal kernel abstraction, and
not by messing with the internals of the GIC.
Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
