Ok, sorry for misleading you this. It seems we cannot use the gpio-chip
irqchip, since that will register the irqchip automatically and possibly
in an incompatible way. This new functionality is far from well
documented, and you basically have to review the gpiolib code to figure
it out.

Looks like you need to add back the struct irq_chip.
