Problem with mini-PCI-E slot on P2020RDB

I'm trying to use mini-PCI-E WLAN card on P2020RDB running 2.6.32, but 
so far without success.
ath9k driver identifies the device, I can run ifconfig, iwconfig and 
hostapd on wlan0, but device is not
getting any interrupts,  so I suspect the interrupt configuration is 
wrong. Atheros ath9k driver reports:

phy0: Atheros AR9280 MAC/BB Rev:2 AR5133 RF Rev:d0: mem=0xf1060000, irq=16

The mapping for irq 16 is:

irq: irq 1 on host /soc at ffe00000/pic at 40000 mapped to virtual irq 16

According to /proc/interrupts:

 16:          0   OpenPIC   Edge      ath9k

The same problem happens if Atheros card is plugged (with adapter) into 
regular PCI-E slot.

It seems that p2020rdb device tree is missing interrupt-map-mask and 
interrupt-map properties
in PCI-E nodes.

I've tried running kernel from latest FSL BSP for this board (based on 
2.6.32-rc3). The device tree
has the interrupt-map-mask and interrupt-map properties, and interrupt 
mapping is different:

irq: irq 0 on host /soc at ffe00000/pic at 40000 mapped to virtual irq 16

In /proc/interrups I see
 16:     100001   OpenPIC   Level     ath9k

However, when ath9k driver is loaded I get this:

irq 16: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)

Disabling IRQ #16

Atheros card plugged into regular PCI-E slot  works OK in  FSL BSP.

Any help in resolving this is much appreciated.
