v5.4 should additionally revert a7fc89f9d5fc ("gpio: thunderx: Switch
to GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP"). v5.5 contains this revert too (a564ac35d605
Revert "gpio: thunderx: Switch to GPIOLIB_IRQCHIP") and the code in
that area is the same then for all kernels from 5.2 to 5.5, which is
basically a revert back to 5.1. I think this is ok.

Do you have a particular test case to test the driver that I can use
for my own testing?

Thanks,

-Robert
