We have no knowledge about out of tree h/w to understand what you need

How many actual hwirqs in each case and what is the range?

So for CIU3, it seems you would need to use a radix tree. CIU2 is
probably borderline depending on what is the max number. But because you
don't yet have code in tree for either yet, you can use a linear domain
for now. It shouldn't be hard to switch from linear to radix later.

OCTEON_IRQ_* values need to go. You may not have to do that now, but
certainly before doing support for CIU2 and CIU3 you do. Those platforms
should be DT only.

Yes. You're not the only one with this issue.

For a legacy boot yes. But when you boot with DT, you should not need
them. This is certainly possible as several ARM platforms do this. You
need to start with minimal set of drivers enabled for DT and add them
back in 1 by 1.
