Thanks for testing the patch!

So the idea behind my change was that as long as the irqchip isn't the
root of the irqdomain (might be using the terms incorrectly) like the
gic, you can make it a platform driver. And I was trying to hack up a
patch that's the equivalent of platform_irqchip_probe() (which just
ends up eventually calling the callback you use in IRQCHIP_DECLARE().
I probably made some mistake in the quick hack that I'm sure if
fixable.

However, this timer driver also uses TIMER_OF_DECLARE() which can't
handle failure to get the IRQ (because it's can't -EPROBE_DEFER). So,
this means, the timer driver inturn needs to be converted to a
platform driver if it's supposed to work with the IRQCHIP_DECLARE()
being converted to a platform driver.

But that's a can of worms not worth opening. But then I remembered
this simpler workaround will work and it is pretty much a variant of
the workaround that's already in the gpc's irqchip driver to allow two
drivers to probe the same device (people really should stop doing
that).

Can you drop my previous hack patch and try this instead please? I'm
99% sure this will work.
