Actually, the register written here is not part of the irqchip.
It is a system config register that is only used when using a GPIO as
external interrupt.
Its aim is to mux the GPIO bank on a line.
For example on line 1, it can be muxed to select either gpioa1,
gpiob1, gpioc1, ...
How could I do it in the irqchip that has no gpio knowledge?

In case the consumer uses an interrupt right off the irqchip, it
should not access this register.
For example the RTC wakeup lines, where we will reference directly the irqchip.

That said, do you still believe the implementation is wrong? Do I miss
