I can't remember and can't find any record of any discussion of it which
is odd, might've been on IRC or something. Let's just remove it and see
what breaks, since we generally provide the type along with the request
for the interrupt I'm not sure how often the default actually gets used.
Possibly safer as a second patch though in case there is a good reason
that I missed so we can easily revert it.

Unfortunately this also collides with a change I applied earlier on from
Bartosz which supports chips that use masks instead of a separate type
register to handle types so it'll need respinning, sorry about that. It
does look safe to me but it's possible I missed something. Equally it
only seems to be some quite old Tegra systems using the max77620 so
perhaps mainline usage of affected devices is limited anyway...
