This isn't a proper Fixes line. Should have quotes

Fixes: 461c1a7d4733 ("gpiolib: override irq_enable/disable")

How does this work in the lazy case when I want to drive the GPIO? Say I
have a GPIO that is also an interrupt. The code would look like

 struct gpio_desc *gpio = gpiod_get(...)
 unsigned int girq = gpiod_to_irq(gpio)

 request_irq(girq, ...);

 disable_irq(girq);
 gpiod_direction_output(gpio, 1);

In the lazy case genirq wouldn't call the mask function until the first
interrupt arrived on the GPIO line. If that never happened then wouldn't
we be blocked in gpiod_direction_output() when the test_bit() sees
FLAG_USED_AS_IRQ? Or do we need irqs to be released before driving
gpios?
