Hmm. Ok. I guess platform_irq_count() has to go and create irq
mappings if they haven't been created yet and that then causes us
to check if we can even get the interrupt for this particular
irq? There are some interrupt lines that are not routed to the
application processor in the system, so the irq_ee (irq execution
environment) is different. This check is there to avoid creating
flow handlers for irqs that can't be triggered.

I can see how trying to request that irq doesn't make sense,
because it won't ever happen. But preventing that from being
translated is confusing. Perhaps we can move the check for irq_ee
to the irq_request_resources() callback in the irqchip? That way,
we can fail installing the flow handler for the interrupt we
can't ever receive, but otherwise translate the interrupt number
so we can keep counting them.

Also, I see that on v4.13-rc series the read/write checks are
causing the led driver to fail in a different way:

spmi spmi-0: error: impermissible write to peripheral sid:0 addr:0xc040
qcom-spmi-gpio 200f000.spmi:pm8916@0:gpios@c000: write 0x40 failed
leds-gpio soc:leds: Error applying setting, reverse things back
spmi spmi-0: error: impermissible write to peripheral sid:0 addr:0xc041
qcom-spmi-gpio 200f000.spmi:pm8916@0:gpios@c000: write 0x41 failed
leds-gpio: probe of soc:leds failed with error -1

Are you seeing similar behavior?
