Unique names help in the debugger, with backtraces etc. But as there is no
other interrupt.c in our source yet, the name is good. 

What about following way:
Check in the recent stellarislib/interrupt.c
Extract the needed changes from cortex_interrupt.c
Replace references to cortex_interrupt.c with interrupt.c
Remove the license requirements.

However as I don't have the original luminary/interrupt.c, we are not sure
if the extracted changes are our changes or code from the original file :-(
