No, you are not missing something. Maybe I did not explain clearly.

The v1 has been nacked because Grygorii told me that the
function platform_get_irq() should be done as early as possible to avoid
unnecessary initialization steps, and the function devm_request_irq()
should be done late in probe when driver and HW are actually ready to
handle IRQs. It can do the other things between the two funtions. I agree
with him that it may be necessary in some complex drives. So abandon the
patch v1.

Base on the discussion of you and Michal, I think maybe this patch is also
needed for the simple driver or the driver of already use it like that:
	
	irq = platform_get_irq(pdev, 0);
	if (irq < 0)
		return irq;
	ret = devm_request_irq()

It provides a common error handling and reduce one function call for each
drivers, more easier to use and simplify code. So resend it.
