The irqchip maintainers (Thomas, Jason, Marc Z.) will probably want to
get irqchip drivers changes through their tree:

M: Thomas Gleixner <>
M: Jason Cooper <>
M: Marc Zyngier <>
S: Maintained
T: git git://
T: git git:// irqchip/core
F: Documentation/devicetree/bindings/interrupt-controller/
F: drivers/irqchip/

Will reply to the individual patches, thanks for getting this out.
