To be honest, the chained handler is what troubles me the most. You
normally would use such a construct if you had a multiplexer. In your
case, you have a 1:1 relationship between input and output. It is just
that this irqchip allows the trigger to be adapted, which normally
calls for a hierarchical implementation.

In your case, with only a single interrupt, it doesn't matter much
though.

Whichever default state makes sense. What you want to avoid is to boot
the kernel with a screaming interrupt because some firmware has left
it enabled.

Thanks,
