So each GPIO has its own interrupt line looped back from the PMIC
and into some other SoC or so handling the actual interrupt?
This seems expensive? (Albeit efficient and fast.)

*is* listed below?

I usually name pins with CAPITAL LETTERS so would be
"GPIO1", "GPIO2" etc, lowercase may be confusing as these are
names not functions or groups.

These are a bit ambigous, why doesn't the driver present functions that
are more specific than "func1", "func2"? Or "dtest1"?

I guess the following just redefines or extends the generic pinconf
bindings (which is fully OK).

Isn't the type simply bool?

bool?

Hm, I don't know of the internal kernel API or so, but I'm thinking that
for the DT bindings, this definition should be generic in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/pinctrl/pinctrl-bindings.txt
and put in SI units like uA.

So I would prefer:

bias-pull-up = <30>;

for 30 uA. Maybe we want nA even? I'm uncertain about the proper granularity
here :-/

Magic enumerators 1,2,3,4 doesn't seem so good, that seems more like it's
trying to match the magic value that is to be poked into a register or
something like that.

These are more apropriate to have in custom format selectors
I think, so this is OK.

I would really prefer to have these in mA, because the genric pinconf
bindings say they should be! SI units are so much more understandable.

So this looks a bit weird. But if I just get to understand the hardware
I guess it won't anymore.

So there is an interrupt parent to which the IRQ lines from the PMIC
are routed back through external lines to IRQ offsets 192 thru 235?
