I guess this discussion is about drivers/pinctrl/samsung/pinctrl-exynos.c?

Or else I'm not really following this... $SUBJECT is a bit confusing.

I think someone should look into switching the Samsung/Exynos pinctrl
driver to the gpiolib irqchip helpers, I looked at it but was scared by
the special wkup chip and stuff I can't test.

The irqchip helpers will atleast help out in flagging GPIO lines as
used for IRQs so the core can keep track of stuff and show that
properly in debugfs.

The orthogonality compliance between GPIO and irqchip must
however be solved in the driver itself, the core only helps out
in blocking some abuse of the API.
