Subject[PATCH 3/3] genirq: Check for trigger type mismatch in __setup_irq()
Currently, if the trigger type defined by the platform like DT does not
match the driver requested trigger type, the below warning is shown
during platform_get_irq() but only during the second time of the drive
probe (due to probe deferral or module unload/load).

irq: type mismatch, failed to map hwirq-9 for interrupt-controller@b220000!

Consider a typical usecase of requesting an IRQ in a driver:

/* Assume DT has set the trigger type to IRQF_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH */

q6v5->wdog_irq = platform_get_irq_byname(pdev, "wdog");
if (q6v5->wdog_irq <= 0)
return q6v5->wdog_irq;

ret = devm_request_threaded_irq(&pdev->dev, q6v5->wdog_irq,
NULL, q6v5_wdog_interrupt,
"q6v5 wdog", q6v5);
if (ret) {
dev_err(&pdev->dev, "failed to acquire wdog IRQ\n");
return ret;

For the first time probe of a driver, platform_get_irq_byname() does not
return an error and it sets the platform requested trigger type. Then,
request_irq() also does not check for the trigger type mismatch and sets
the driver requested trigger type. Later if the driver gets probed again,
platform_get_irq() throws the "type mismatch" warning and fails.

Ideally, request_irq() should throw the error during the first time itself,
when it detects the trigger type mismatch. So let's add a check in
__setup_irq() for checking the trigger type mismatch.

It should be noted that the platform trigger type could be IRQ_TYPE_NONE
in some cases like IRQ controller inside the GPIOCHIP. For those cases,
the check should be skipped.
