Doesn't that assume then that reset value is correct for the type that
we are trying to program the PPIs?
This is all very academic, as I don't have any real example of a GIC doing
this, but ...
- if the PPI is set at reset value to be level triggered
- and we want to set PPIx to be level LOW triggered
with your proposed patch the change will not happen, right?
