[PATCH] irqdomain: document the simple domain first_irq

From: Linus Walleij
Date: Thu Feb 28 2013 - 04:10:53 EST

From: Linus Walleij <linus.walleij@xxxxxxxxxx>

The first_irq needs to be zero to get a linear domain and that
comes with special semantics. We want to simplify this going
forward but some documentation never hurts.
