Oops, sorry, you seem to have come to pretty much the same conclusion as
I did. I think what we need to do is find a copy of the TRM and see what
exactly the right behaviour is. Or we need to find someone that can take
measurements of the PMIC interrupt pin.

I was unable to find a working link to a copy of the Palmas TRM. Laxman,
do you know of an internal location where we may have a copy?

I'm not sure we need to go to those lengths. As far as I'm concerned, if
it turns out that we've inverted the logic for Tegra114, that's a bug in
the DTS and we should fix it along with the driver to remove the double
negation. I don't think this would be causing any problems with existing
DTBs since, as far as I can tell, the TPS65913 is only used on Dalmore
(which was never publicly available) or Roth and TN7, neither of which I
think anyone ever ran upstream Linux on other than maybe Alex who added
the support. In all of the above cases, there is no problem updating the
DTB since it's all loaded either from eMMC or from an Android boot image
as far as I understand.

But again, I think we need to make sure to get this right, so we need to
find an authoritative source that tells us what exactly the polarity is,
so that we avoid revisiting this a few years down the road.
