Absolutely. The majority of the bindings will then just become standard
interrupt bindings and will be effectively handled for you.
Please work to extend the existing interrupt trigger driver rather than adding
this new one. That one actually started as a gpio trigger then got
generalised into a interrupt trigger later so lets not do that again ;)
