Out of curiosity, how do you plan to communicate dynamic configuration
of IRQs to the ARISC? We recently went through this with some TI
stuff, and the result a bit awkward (the arm64 side configures
interrupts that are not visible to the kernel, but only to the

I wondered whether you had other ideas...



Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
