[PATCH 3.13 016/103] of/irq: Fix lookup to use 'interrupts-extended' property first

3.13.11.8 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Florian Fainelli <f.fainelli at gmail.com>

commit a9ecdc0fdc54aa499604dbd43132988effcac9b4 upstream.

In case the Device Tree blob passed by the boot agent supplies both an
'interrupts-extended' and an 'interrupts' property in order to allow for
older kernels to be usable, prefer the new-style 'interrupts-extended'
property which conveys a lot more information.

This allows us to have bootloaders willingly maintaining backwards
compatibility with older kernels without entirely deprecating the
'interrupts' property.

Update the bindings documentation to describe a situation where both the
'interrupts-extended' and the 'interrupts' property are present, and
which one takes precedence over the other.
