Indeed. I'm not aware of anything wrong so far with GIC400, so this is
most likely referring to an integration issue.

Furthermore, PPI triggers are usually not configurable on GIC400. My bet
is that this is only a DT issue, but in the absence of any coherent
justification, it is hard to make an educated guess...

Aniruddha: please state your problem clearly so that we can understand
what exactly is going wrong.

Thanks,

M.
