Thanks. I see you've Cc'ed Ben, thanks.

However, it is worth noting that the previous approach was based on a
drivers/of registry of msi_chip, which Rob Herring, as drivers/of
maintainer, has Acked. But then, this Sunday, Grant said he disagreed
with the approach. So even though he is no longer an official
maintainer, he seems to be the one who decides what direction
drivers/of and irqdomain should be having.

Of course, if Ben could look at those irqdomain patches and give his
Acked-by, it'd be great.
