Like I said in other email, I don't think this will work because the
GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP support seems to be limited to cases where a single
parent interrupt is used. We could possibly live with a single IRQ
handler and data, but we definitely need to request multiple IRQs if
we want to be able to use all GPIOs as interrupts.
