Your guess is correct, this involves a currently out-of-tree extension to
the gpio-ich driver which allows GPIO pins to be mapped to IRQs by demuxing
their corresponding GPE events.
The gpio_irq_demo module requests a GPIO pin, converts it to an IRQ using
gpio_to_irq() and registers a trivial handler against the IRQ.

Thanks for the background.

I thought that might be that case.
