Hi Yun,
There are different interfaces for different purposes.
irq_domain_set_hwirq_and_chip() sets hwirq, irq_chip and irq_chip_data.
irq_domain_set_info() sets handler and handler_data in addition to
Which irqdomain to call irq_domain_set_info() to set irq_handler
is determined by the interrupt hierarchy. And at least on irqdomain in
the hierarchy must set flow handler for the irq.
