This fix has been all tested now, with no visible side effects:

https://staging.kernelci.org/test/job/kernelci/branch/staging.kernelci.org/kernel/staging-20200928.1/plan/baseline/

In the meantime, the same issue was detected (without the fix)
and bisected on sun5i-a13-olinuxino-micro and landed on the same
commit. A few more platforms are also impacted such as imx53-qsb
as mentioned by Fabio.

The commit is in your irqchip tree so I guess we should wait for
you to apply the fix. If you do make a separate commit to fix
the issue, please add:

Reported-by: kernelci.org bot <bot@kernelci.org>

and also:

Tested-by: Guillaume Tucker <guillaume.tucker@collabora.com>

Thanks,
Guillaume
