ok.

driver.h only brings chained_irq.h. of_irq.h is still required. Right ?

My bad. Left over from the old code. I will remove it.

Sure.

That's really cool. Sorry, for not checking that earlier.
I am pretty new to this.

Great. This will reduce the driver a code by a big factor.
Thanks for the pointer.

Will do.

Thanks. I will convert them to hierarchical IRQ.
