I would prefer if you could try to convert this driver to use
CONFIG_GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP and install a chained interrupt
handler with gpiochip_irqchio_add() + gpiolib_set_chained_irqchip().
It would save us so much trouble and so much complicated
code to maintain for this custom irqdomain.

I suggest you to look into the mechanisms mentioned in my
previous mail for how to poke holes in the single linear
irqdomain used by this mechanism.

As it seems, you only have one parent interrupt with all
these IRQs cascading off it as far as I can tell.
