Big thanks for testing this so early Charles =) It's nice to get this
report before I broke things more widely!

Right. Thanks for pinpointing the issue. This thing is a bit fishy.
There should not be a need for a 'fake type setting callback' when we
have shared IRQ with two or more devices who actually agree on IRQ type
- assuming the HW default irq type is correct.

For me the correct thing would that the HW default type should be
stored in desc and returned by irqd_get_trigger_type instead of
IRQF_TRIGGER_NONE. But I have no idea how that would be nicely
implemented w/o going trough all the irqchips.

The other option would be being more permissive when IRQF_TRIGGER_NONE
is set as oldtype. But I am not feeling like an expert on this area.

Huge thanks for the offer Charles - I do really appreciate the testing.
Touching the IRQ core sounds quite scary to me. Changing it feels risky
and would probably involve bunch of other people too. 10-years ago I
would have taken the challenge and tried to get this "correct" - but
nowadays I have learned to accept some small shortcuts :p

I will gladly follow things and participate the discussions/development
if someone wants to see how this should be done - but I don't think I
have the energy and time to drive this change further... So Mark, please
just drop this patch and keep the original fix unless you want to drive
this further yourself =)
