As mentioned by Robin the common interrupt status registers are located outside the PWM node reg range.
The Rockchip PWM driver is only focused on continuous mode, while these interrupts only for "Capture mode" and "One-shot mode" and need a different handling.
Interrupts without reg resources is not going to work well,
so I think this patch can go in the garbage bin.
