All that contain this:
"gpio: interrupt consistency check for OF GPIO IRQs"

OK that works for the pure device-tree scenario so mostly
this is OK.

The problem that appear is if someone is using platform data-provided
IRQs off the irq_chip without calling gpio_to_irq() on the GPIO line
first. This has been determined to be legal to do, so preferably
create the map when registering the lines.

Sure.... but this does not seem to have much to do
with my request to use gpio_lock_as_irq().

OK that's nice.

Yeah.. this is usually a bit tricky.

I don't know, I cannot really see where the problem is.

The IRQ domain is for translationg hardware numbers such as bit offsets
into Linux IRQ numbers and nothing else, so I'd suggest that as long as
the thing you are translating/mapping is something simple like a bit
index you're doing the right thing.

If it becomes something complex where that index is not just a bit
but an index into an array of registers at various locations it is
abusing the irqdomain.

So I think you should create one irqdomain per GPIO instance
or bank or whatever you want to call it: like if there is this one
register with 32 bits, then it gets its own IRQdomain.

I think you should try to keep the 5 irqdomains, but whatever
gives the simplest code is usually the right answer, and
divide-and-conquer (split down the problem) is usually a good

How the GPIO block(s) are represented in the device tree is
another totally separate issue about hardware description,
do not let the device tree model your driver structure.
