You're basically recommending handcrafting another local piece of code
for simulating interrupts - something that multiple users may be
interested in. You did that in your proposed gpio-simulator and I
still can't understand why you couldn't reuse the existing solution.
Even if it's broken for your use-case, it's surely easier to fix it
than to rewrite and duplicate it? There are very few cases where code
consolidation is not a good thing and I don't think this is one of
them.

The interrupt simulator exists and is used by two testing drivers
currently. One of them needs some more flexibility and this is what
this patch is trying to add. I believe it is worth the effort.

Best regards,
Bartosz
