OK something is off here, because the purpose of the irqdomain
is exactly to translate between different number spaces, so it should
not happen in the .to_irq() function at all.

Irqdomain uses .map() in the old variant and .translate() in the
hierarchical variant to do this, so something is skewed.

All .to_irq() should ever do is just call the irqdomain to do the
translation, no other logic (unless I am mistaken) so we should
be able to keep the simple .to_irq() logic inside gpiolib.
