Patch applied.

I'm a bit concerned that you now support both edge and level trigged
IRQs but this driver is using handle_simple_irq() in the
gpiochip_irqchip_add() call. I guess it "just works" because
the hardware will latch the edge IRQ and clear it when reading the
status register.

I guess you have tested it with both edge and level IRQs?
