I'm a little confused. Is this device the whole "ompic", a sub-device
thereof, or an independent IP block connected to it?

This needs a vendor prefix.

Presumably, this should be "opencores,ompic"? (pending whether this is
actually the whole ompic, as above).

How are those regions correlated with CPUs?

e.g. is there a fixed relationship with a physical CPU id, or some
mechanism by which the relationship can be probed dynamically?

No flags? Does this not need edge/level configuration or active high/low
configuration?

What is this interrupt used for?

Is this some percpu interrupt used to proxy the IPI? It feels very odd
to assume such a thing from the parent irqchip. Surely this is
intimately coupled with that?

Is there guaranteed to only be one of these system-wide?

Here you assume that the mapping is big enough to cover these registers,
but the ompic_of_init() function didn't sanity-check the size, so this
is not guaranteed.

Given this function is only invoked if the kernel found a node with a
matching compatible string, how can this possibly happen?

As ipi_data was static, it is already zeroed.

What if this failed?

What if this is missing?

As covered earlier, I;m confused by this. I'd expect that your root
irqchip would handle the IPIs, and hence need to probe nothing from the
DT for those.

Here we're assuming the IRQ is wired up to some per-cpu interrupt that
we can treat as an IPI, and that the parent irqchip handles that
appropriately, which seems very odd.

Thanks,
Mark.
