A few minor things inline. I'm not sure the balance between what is
done in driver and what is in the core is quite right yet.

I'm a little confused by this comment. Do you mean:

1. Same gpio irq is provided as as shared irq to a number of devices?
(In this case we are just aiming not to register the same IRQ multiple times
as each driver may have already done it?) If it is this case, I think we
should be pushing the irq register and checking logic to the smbus core which
can then verify if it is the same interrupt or not? (could be case 2 below
in which case we need to register another handler).

2. Different gpio irqs provided to a number of devices on same bus with
each acting as ARA interrupt? (this is hideous so I hope not - but
I would be surprised if we never see a board doing this)

Fix this up (needs a short description) and make it kernel-doc /**
