OK.

This is just to be flexible.

There is only one IRQ for all four banks.
I will try to make this logic and other places in the driver you pointed out,
less convoluted.
The handling is (very) slightly different for the upper two banks and
lower two banks.

I'm sorry i just looked at them -
pm_runtime_force_suspend/resume are not used here.
