When you write e.g. "interrupt-parent = <&gic>" what you are actually
doing is creating a cell with a reference the phandle of the node called
"gic". If you decompile a dtb you'll see that the gic node has a
property "phandle = N" (where N is some unique integer) and that other
nodes have "interrupt-parent = <N>".

So this is adding that phandle property so we can refer to it.
