In which constellation can they be different?

IIRC there are controllers that may not let you re-configure GPIO that
is reserved for interrupt, for output. So you could have a bit of
hardware logic that splits and isolates GPIO and interrupt line.

Also have the trigger come from the interrupt description as well in
case you happen to have inverter logic there.

Thanks for clarification, didn't knew that. So,I will take this in advance.

Yes it is. You are right, this wouldn't work. Was this the scenario
you had in mind while
writing the comment above?

No, that was just a general comment about GPIO on slow busses. You might
need to check gpiod_can_sleep() and abort driver load if gpio is

Yes, I will do so.
