I think the HW is fairly simple and straightforward comparing to other
irq chips so it's rather a logic that concerned me the most i.e. why
gpio irqs were handled in a "simple" manner whereas the rest of
interrupts in "edge" manner. According to specification all interrupts
are edge driven and that's how are they treated in set_type callback.
First I thought that all can be handled as simple but then I realized
it makes more sense in handling all of them as edge as they should
according to specification. I will prepare a v3 series with more
detailed explanation in it.
