This one is a plain IRQ controller. It has simple input lines, not GPIO
pins. The chip reports its status to upper level interrupt controller.
The upper level controller is PXA GPIO in this case.

The chip requires no GPIO initialization.

This is done in kernel source which comes with the device. The
controller won't work without this line.

I cannot know for sure, as I don't have board datasheets or drawings. I
suspect, this clears GPIO line which reports interrupts to the upper
level controller.

PXA isn't DT-only at the moment. As a result, it is impossible
to use IRQCHIP_DECLARE(). So drivers for the on-CPU IRQs and GPIO-IRQs
are loaded using postcore_initcall(). We need to have all irq domain
drivers loaded prior to DT parsing in order to allow normal
initialization of IRQ resources with DT. I'll update the commit message.

The rest of review comment are implemented. The changes don't affect any
other patches in the series. Should I repost the whole series?

Or only this patch?
