This has been fixed in a later patch in the same series here:

[RESEND PATCH v3 05/11] ASoC: davinci-mcasp: Interrupts property to 
optional and add interrupt-names

However the v3 series is already obsolete. The latest posted series is 
v4. There the patch patch bellow inculdes interrupt names, plus some 
other improvements based on your comments earlier:

[PATCH v4 05/10] ASoC: davinci-mcasp: Improve DT bindings document

There is already couple of updates even to v4 series of the patches, here:

[PATCH v4.1 08/10] ARM/dts: am33xx: mcasp: Add location for data port 
registers to reg-property

[PATCH v4.2 09/10] ARM/dts: am335x-evm: Add audio support for am335x-evm.dts

[PATCH v4.2 10/10] ARM/dts: am335x-evmsk: Audio support
