    [POWERPC] Remove interrupt-controller as a property under /chosen
     Remove interrupt-controller as a valid property under /chosen in
     the documentation.  There is a consensus that an
     interrupt-controller property does not belong under /chosen.
     /chosen is specifically for dynamic properties set at runtime.
