My motivation is to describe interrupt connection by
DT property, like follows:

interrupts = <48 4>, <49 4>, <50 4>, <51 4>,
<52 4>, <53 4>, <54 4>, <55 4>,
<56 4>, <57 4>, <58 4>, <59 4>,
<60 4>, <61 4>, <62 4>, <63 4>,
<154 4>, <155 4>, <156 4>, <157 4>,
<158 4>;


The number of cells is fixed, so I need to
give something as the second parameter.

The "4" may not be a real trigger type,
it is just a temporal value to fill the space.


The device may pass a different trigger type
when it calls gpio_to_irq() && request_irq().
I cannot know the real trigger type until the device is probed.


Having said that, if this is a bad idea,
I will consider a different approach for my GPIO driver.
