Move select IRQ drivers to drivers/irqchip

Registered by Linus Walleij on 2012-11-01

As we're migrating IRQ drivers (irqchips) from the platforms and down to drivers/irqchip, we need to set some examples so subarch maintainers know how to go about this task. Use my own maintained systems to pave the way. In this blueprint I collect a TODO for a few of these chips.

Headline: Example on how to migrate IRQ drivers (irqchips) from the platforms and down to drivers/irqchip has been set and merged upstream
Acceptance:
 * Merged to arm-soc tree
 * git commit URL logged here for reference

Rob Herring has proposed a patch moving the vital GIC and VIC drivers to drivers/irqchip, along with an infrastructual change to simplify the use of irqchips.

[jakub-pavelek 2013-05-07] Still for 3.10? No pressure, can go to 3.11 as well, just set it right.
