Why? You can have a shared or dedicated interrupt and the driver does
not really need to know if it can poll the status.

Yes, it depends on the HW design and that is exactly why the approach
with devm_acpi_dev_add_driver_gpios() does not work well here: this is
a generic driver used on many platforms and you are trying to put the
platform knowledge into the driver. Here we are lucky I guess as I do
not believe anyone is using more than one slot, so we can have a tavle
with a single entry, but actually doing the fallback the way Rajat was
proposing is more correct. Or you have a table with N entries, where N
is hopefully sufficiently large.

Again, you think as if the driver was platform specific; it is not. I
have 1000s of systems with different ACPI tables. Let's say half of
them use one polarity, and half another. Which polarity do you propose
to use?

Thanks.
