Hmmm ... yes I see. I wonder if we should make the setting of the type
here dependent upon PM being enabled for an irqchip? We could check to
see if the .parent_device is populated and if so only then save the type
and otherwise just set it as we do today.

We could add a WARN to the existing irq_set_irq_type() or may be just a
pr_warn() if a WARN is too verbose so people can fix up any issues.

I am also wondering if patch 4/17 "iqdomain: Fix handling of type
settings for existing mappings" could generate a lot of reports
interrupts failing due to bad firmware? I wonder if I should tone this
patch down to a warning message as well as opposed to a complete failure.

Cheers
Jon
