Yes, you're the third to report this breakage.

Grant's response on Tuesday over this was:

It's still true for any platform which hasn't been converted to genirq,
as such a platform would not have asm/hw_irq.h.  That said, since
genirq, it's now necessary for any driver which contains interrupt
controller code like GPIO drivers.  So I suspect the comment should now
be lost, even though it's not really a replacement for asm/irq.h.
