I think any interrupt from the Exynos pin controller should work, even
shared one. I'd expect irq_request_resources() to be invoked for
shared interrupts as well, otherwise we have a problem... (I quickly
looked through kernel/irq/manage.c and it seems to be invoked for the
first __setup_irq() call even for shared interrupts.)
