That is why these functions are not needed on the 8260.  On the 8xx,
the CPM is a second level interrupt controller from the PowerPC core.
That is, the CPM was one interrupt vector from the SIU core, and the
CPM further multiplexed all interrupts from its devices.

On the 8260, all CPM devices are unique interrupts from the SIU core,
so they use the "standard" internal interrupt controller functions.  I
don't know what a "CPM interrupt" function would do on the 8260, other
than be a single line of code that calls the SIU interrupt function
with exactly the same parameters.
