Yes, I just followed the lead of existing drivers.

Yeah, if the Makefile had been at least somewhat sorted already I'd have
followed that. I'll move it next to LS_SCFG_MSI in next version.

Yes, I'm sure. The 26 unused bits in the INTPCR register are marked as
reserved with a POR value of 0. Fortunately, they can still be set and
read back, and when I did 1U << hwirq it was some of those bits that got
set (the POR value of the six used bits are all 1, so the hardware still
worked on my board because all the lines happen to be of negative polarity).

>> Anyway, please use BIT(x) instead.

I really prefer not to, that macro obfuscates the type, and unsigned
long is the wrong thing to use for something that must be a 32 bit
quantity. Sure, BITS_PER_LONG==32 in this case, but I don't think
BIT(foo) is any easier to read than 1U << (foo).

I'm not really sure when the interrupt gets unmasked, but if it happens
during the parent ->set_type, we must have set the polarity beforehand.
Also, I don't see why one would need to undo the INTPCR update - the
polarity of the external line is a property of whatever hardware is
attached (right?), so setting the INTPCR according to the DT just
ensures the GIC gets a positive signal. Anyway, if I do need to add
unwind code, I suppose the answer to

is yes.

Yeah, wasn't sure about this, but I can certainly add a check.

Exactly, it takes a lot less .rodata to make this static than having gcc
generate .text to build this array on the stack.

Yes, isn't this what the code in of_irq_init does? Initialize parent
interrupt controllers before their children (even if this maybe doesn't
qualify as a real interrupt controller)?
