Exampe:

struct max77650_gpio_pdata {
int gpi_irq;
};

In MFD driver:

struct max77650_gpio_pdata *gpio_data = devm_kmalloc(dev, sizeof(*gpio_data));

gpio_data->gpi_irq = regmap_irq_get_virq(irqchip_data, GPI_NUM);

gpio_cell.platform_data = gpio_data;

In GPIO driver:

struct max77650_gpio_pdata *gpio_data = pdev->dev.platform_data;

int irq = gpio_data->gpi_irq;
