I do not think it is difficult, the difference is that keystone has
1 GIC irq line allocated per legacy IRQ, your set-up has one for
all INTX.

*However*, I would like some clarifications from Murali on this code
in drivers/pci/controller/dwc/pci-keystone.c:

static void ks_pcie_legacy_irq_handler(struct irq_desc *desc)
{
	unsigned int irq = irq_desc_get_irq(desc);
	struct keystone_pcie *ks_pcie = irq_desc_get_handler_data(desc);
	struct dw_pcie *pci = ks_pcie->pci;
	struct device *dev = pci->dev;
	u32 irq_offset = irq - ks_pcie->legacy_host_irqs[0];

Here the IRQ numbers are virtual IRQs, is it correct to consider
the virq numbers as sequential values ? The "offset" is used to
handle the PCI controller interrupt registers, so it must be a value
between 0-3 IIUC.

I would appreciated a detailed explanation of keystone legacy IRQ
handling so that we can eventually try to replicate it and generalize
it.

	[...]

	chained_irq_enter(chip, desc);
	ks_dw_pcie_handle_legacy_irq(ks_pcie, irq_offset);
	chained_irq_exit(chip, desc);
}
