SubjectRe: [PATCH 10/13] gpio: max77650: add GPIO support
Hi Bartosz,

thanks for the patch!

Overall you know for sure what you're doing so not much to
say about the GPIO chip etc. The .set_config() is nice and
helpful (maybe you will be able to also add pull up/down
using Thomas Petazzoni's new config interfaces!)

However enlighten me on this:

I know this may be opening the gates to a lot of coding, but
isn't this IRQ hierarchical? I.e. that irqchip is not in the
node of the GPIO chip but in the node of the MFD top
device, with a 1:1 mapping between some of the IRQs
and a certain GPIO line.

Using regmap IRQ makes it confusing for me so I do not
know for sure if that is the case.

I am worried that you are recreating a problem (present in many
drivers, including some written by me, mea culpa) that Brian Masney
has been trying to solve for the gpiochip inside the SPMI
GPIO (drivers/pinctrl/qcom/pinctrl-spmi-gpio.c).

I have queued Brians refactoring and solution here:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/linusw/linux-gpio.git/log/?h=ib-qcom-spmi

And the overall description on what he's trying to achieve is
here:
https://marc.info/?l=linux-gpio&m=154793071511130&w=2

My problem description (which I fear will apply also to this
driver):
https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-gpio/msg34655.html

I plan to merge Brians patches soon-ish to devel and then from
there try to construct more helpers in the gpiolib core,
and if possible fix some of the old drivers who rely on
.to_irq().

We will certainly fix ssbi-gpio as well, and that is a good start
since the Qualdcomm platforms are so pervasive in the
market.

But maybe this doesn't apply here? I am not the smartest...
Just want to make sure that it is possible to refer an
interrupt directly to this DT node, as it is indeed marked
as interrupt-controller.

Yours,
Linus Walleij
