In the Intel PMICs the MFD irqchip has a single interrupt for all GPIOs.
The GPIO driver then has its own irqchip and it looks at other registers
to find out which GPIO interrupt fired. It's a typical cascaded setup.

In my case the MFD irqchip has one interrupt per GPIO. The GPIO driver
does not need its own irqchip; everything is handled by the MFD irqchip.
Existing examples include wm831x, wm8994, da9052, and tps6586x.
