        gpio-keys {

                apm_ctrl_name = "Power Button";
                btn2 {
                        label = "EXT_INT2";
                        gpios = <&sbgpio 13 0x0>;
                        linux,code = <116>;
                        linux,input-type = <0x1>;     /* EV_KEY */

         sbgpio: sbgpio at 17001000{
                        compatible = "apm,xgene-gpio-sb";
                        reg = <0x0 0x17001000 0x0 0x400>;

I can change the polarity of interrupt in the sbgpio node, but the
issue here is the gpio_key driver always set interrupt type to
driver only support edge rising or level high. So that's our issue.
