Hi Thierry, this is different thing, because chip_data is specific to IRQ
controller, and in other platform, like in x86, chip_data is used to save irq_cfg.
So we can not call irq_set_chip_data() in core code.

x86 irq piece code

int arch_setup_hwirq(unsigned int irq, int node)
{
	struct irq_cfg *cfg;
	unsigned long flags;
	int ret;

	cfg = alloc_irq_cfg(irq, node);
	if (!cfg)
		return -ENOMEM;

	raw_spin_lock_irqsave(&vector_lock, flags);
	ret = __assign_irq_vector(irq, cfg, apic->target_cpus());
	raw_spin_unlock_irqrestore(&vector_lock, flags);

	if (!ret)
		irq_set_chip_data(irq, cfg);  ------------->Save irq_cfg
	else
		free_irq_cfg(irq, cfg);
	return ret;
}

Thanks!
Yijing.
