Hi Atish,

thanks for your patch!

I suggest to add
select GPIO_GENERIC as per below.

Maybe select REGMAP_MMIO as well.

Do you need these two? I think <linux/gpio/driver.h>
will bring them in for you.

Are you using this?

Since max GPIO is 32 why not use an u32 for this?

This looks like a mask and set implementation, you are
essentially reinventing regmap MMIO and the
regmap_update_bits() call. Could you look into
just using regmap MMIO in that case?

If you need examples, look at gpio-mvebu.c that calls
devm_regmap_init_mmio() for example.

These functions look like a typical hardware that can use

GPIOLIB_GENERIC and bgpio_init() to set up the accessors.

See gpio-ftgpio010.c for an example.

As a bonus you will get .get/.set_multiple implemented by
the generic GPIO.

The handling of .irq_enable and .irq_disable has
changed upstream. Please align with the new codebase
as changed by Hans Verkuil:

commit 461c1a7d4733d1dfd5c47b040cf32a5e7eefbc6c
"gpiolib: override irq_enable/disable"
commit 4e9439ddacea06f35acce4d374bf6bd0acf99bc8
"gpiolib: add flag to indicate if the irq is disabled"

You will need to rebase your work on the v4.20-rc1 once it is
out. Right now the changes are on linux-next or my devel
branch.

This is an hierarchical IRQ so it should use an hierarchical
irqdomain.

I am discussing with Thierry to make more generic irq domains
for hierarchical IRQ GPIOs, until then you have to look at
gpio-thunderx.c, gpio-uniphier.c or gpio-xgene-sb.c that all
use hierarchical IRQs.

Yours,
