I have posted a patch based on this approach (after having found out 
that it is possible
with the current framework using platform_get_irq_byname).

Rob Herring has "Acked" the documentation patch:
   [PATCH 1/3] dt/bindings: bcm2835: add interrupt-names property

Is this approach acceptable for you as well, so that we can try to get 
it merged?

Thanks, Martin
