You expose a new set_type callback. Only a set of valid values can be
handled by the users of this interface. At least your mockup gpio only
handles a narrow set of configuration. Not rejecting erroneous values
is a bug. This isn't a new requirement; this is how the irqchip API
works, as drivers do expect such a failure if requiring an invalid
type.

Yes. But it doesn't mean it should accept something that cannot be
handled by the irqchip. If you push it to the code that does the
handling, it still has to return an error if the backing code decides
that this is not a supported configuration.

At the end of the day, where you store it is irrelevant for the problem
at hand. There is an API, and you need to implement it correctly.

IRQ_TYPE_NONE doesn't mean anything, apart from "whatever defaults were
there because I have no clue". In your case, I really don't see the
point. The EDGE settings are what you handle, and are the only values
that should be accepted.

As for the rest of the patches, I haven't looked at them, and probably
won't (if only because I'm on holiday and would like to do something
else...). All I'm asking from you is to give me a correct patch #1.
Once I see that, I'll gladly ack it.
