I don't understand the devm_request_irq() connection. I'm looking at
this irq_set_chained_handler_and_data() call :
static int rockchip_pcie_setup_irq(struct rockchip_pcie *rockchip)
irq = platform_get_irq_byname(pdev, "legacy");
irq = platform_get_irq_byname(pdev, "client");
We look up "irq", pass it to irq_set_chained_handler_and_data(), and
throw it away without saving it anywhere. How would anything know how
to unregister rockchip_pcie_legacy_int_handler()?
I could imagine irq_set_chained_handler_and_data() saving what's
needed for unregistration, but I would think that would require a
device pointer, which we don't give it.
I'm IRQ-illiterate, so please educate me!
