I think that would not be correct from an HW description standpoint
since there is some logic in the host bridge that behaves as an
interrupt controller (eg registers to ack/mask IRQs).

AFAICS the aardvark (it is an example) bindings below should be correct,
with an interrupt controller node within the PCI host bridge:

	pcie0: pcie at d0070000 {
		compatible = "marvell,armada-3700-pcie";
		device_type = "pci";
		reg = <0 0xd0070000 0 0x20000>;
		#address-cells = <3>;
		#size-cells = <2>;
		bus-range = <0x00 0xff>;
		interrupts = <GIC_SPI 29 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
		#interrupt-cells = <1>;
		msi-controller;
		msi-parent = <&pcie0>;
		ranges = <0x82000000 0 0xe8000000   0 0xe8000000 0 0x1000000 /* Port 0 MEM */
			  0x81000000 0 0xe9000000   0 0xe9000000 0 0x10000>; /* Port 0 IO*/
		interrupt-map-mask = <0 0 0 7>;
		interrupt-map = <0 0 0 1 &pcie_intc 0>,
				<0 0 0 2 &pcie_intc 1>,
				<0 0 0 3 &pcie_intc 2>,
				<0 0 0 4 &pcie_intc 3>;
		pcie_intc: interrupt-controller {
			interrupt-controller;
			#interrupt-cells = <1>;
		};
	};

Thoughts ?
