Anything else in there? The bus configuration would just involve writing
a constant value in some register, right? Doing that in the irqchip
is also a bit ugly, but may still be better overall than doing it the
way you have above.

The problem that nested irqdomains address is when an interrupt is handled
by two irqchips, in particular when one irqchip handles a virtual interrupt
number that was claimed by another irqchip already.
