[PATCH] gpiolib: fix line event timestamps for nested irqs
From: Bartosz Golaszewski

From: Bartosz Golaszewski <bgolaszewski@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
Nested interrupts run inside the calling thread's context and the top
half handler is never called which means that we never read the
This issue came up when trying to read line events from a gpiochip
using regmap_irq_chip for interrupts.
Fix it by reading the timestamp from the irq thread function if it's
still 0 by the time the second handler is called.
