>   to irq_domain_add_linear(), rather than just the number of valid hwirqs;
>   the two are different due to the hwirq space being sparse.

> * Simplified armctrl_of_init() using of_iomap().
> * Removed unused IS_VALID_BANK()/IS_VALID_IRQ() macros.
> * Renamed armctrl_handle_irq() to prevent possible symbol clashes.
> * Made armctrl_of_init() static.
> * Removed comment "Each bank is registered as a separate interrupt
>   controller" since this is no longer true.
> * Removed FSF address from license header.
> * Added my name to copyright header.
