Subject[PATCH] Input: elan_i2c - do not clobber interrupt trigger on x86
On x86 we historically used falling edge interrupts in the driver
because that's how first Chrome devices were configured. They also
did not use ACPI to enumerate I2C devices (because back then there
was no kernel support for that), so trigger was hard-coded in the
driver. However the controller behavior is much more reliable if
we use level triggers, and that is how we configured ARM devices,
and how want to configure newer x86 devices as well. All newer
x86 boxes have their I2C devices enumerated in ACPI.

Let's see if platform code (ACPI, DT) described interrupt and
specified particular trigger type, and if so, let's use it instead
of always clobbering trigger with IRQF_TRIGGER_FALLING. We will
still use this trigger type as a fallback if platform code left
interrupt trigger unconfigured.
