Please use a more specific name, "fsl,8599-msi" or similar?

You should describe that it is one "interrupts" entry per 32 MSIs;
also, it would be nice to say they need "0" as the sense.

&Xpic are labels, so something local to specific DTS files; instead, say
that the interrupts are routed to the MPIC/IPIC (it doesn't have to be
via "interrupt-parent", either).


p.s. On a meta-note, please put the binding doc first in the series, it
makes things easier to review in-order.
