To my knowledge this boilerplate is just to describe this
irqchip has 8 different IRQs.

this is also just boilerplate to configure the irqchip. But there are
two
distinct blocks inside the board management controller:
- an interrupt controller (which has 8 interrupts)
- and gpio controllers which also happen to have 8 interrupts and
both have some shared semantics for now. But the GPIO building block
might be extended to provide interrupt type settings, i.e. falling/
rising/level triggered interrupts.

So yes both look similar, but they are two different blocks, they use
different registers and they might drift apart in the future.
