They definitely were. Look at how gpiochip_add_data() eventually ends
up calling gpiochip_set_irq_hooks((), which hijacks the irq_chip
function pointers to insert the calls to these helpers.

This is what this conversion process is all about, and you absolutely
need to understand that code before blindly changing drivers to squash
a run-time warning.


Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
