As far as I know, some IRQF_ flags should be set through the firmware
(e.g. device tree) instead hard coding them into the driver. On my
platform, I have to use IRQF_TRIGGER_LOW instead of IRQF_TRIGGER_FALLING.
If the value is hard coded into the driver, the value from the driver
will have precedence.

What is "the" device tree. Do you mean the device tree for your specific
board, or the example under 
The latter doesn't mention the irq at all.

BTW: In my kernel log I get the following messages:

> ksz9477-switch 0-005f: configuring for fixed/rmii link mode

> ksz9477-switch 0-005f lan1 (uninitialized): PHY [dsa-0.0:01] driver [Microchip KSZ9477] (irq=POLL)

Should I see something different than "irq=POLL" when an
irq line is provided in the device tree?
