I don't say that factoring out common stuff is bad. But if in the end
you call

irq_sim_something(some, parameters, offset);

with the simulator and if you don't use the irq simulator you do

irq = irq_find_mapping(irqdomain, offset);
generic_handle_irq(irq);

I prefer the latter because it's only a single additional line and in
return it's more obvious what it does because it's the same that many
other drivers (for real hardware) also do.

Best regards
Uwe
