Subject[PATCH 2/2] gpio: max732x: Fix irq-events handler
MAX732X doesn't support edge type interrupt. So replace
handle_edge_irq() with handle_level_irq(), which uses
irq_mask/irq_unmask callbacks instead of irq_ack().

This wrong handler may lead to NULL pointer dereference in some cases.
E.g. this was observed on hibernation process:

Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 0
(handle_edge_irq) from (resend_irqs)
(resend_irqs) from (tasklet_action)
(tasklet_action) from (__do_softirq)
(__do_softirq) from (run_ksoftirqd)
(run_ksoftirqd) from (smpboot_thread_fn)
(smpboot_thread_fn) from (kthread)
(kthread) from (ret_from_fork)
