The patch was picked up as-is from the RT patches as it implements a functionality that we wanted to better control IRQ affinity. Being part of the RT patches, I hope that it'll merge into mainline via that route and I am not going to try to mainline it. So your comments will be best addressed to the original patch postings on the lkml (Search for RT patches).
If you think it is really important to address your comments for the patch that goes into Linaro kernel, I could address them and send an updated patch. Though in that case, I am not quite sure how to attribute the original author who wrote the patch.
I sent my comments to the patch author and the RT mailing list, so these changes will hopefully be included in a subsequent version of the RT patches.
