I had already forgotten that your INTA is the multiplexer in your system.

No, using the same virq is completely wrong, as you must have a unique
irq for each of the outputs lines of your INTA.

One solution would be to pre-allocate all the interrupts for the output
lines at probe time, so that you don't have to do much when the INTA
irqs get allocated.

Thanks,
