If you teach the irq-sim driver everything that the gpio-simulator does
in the functions you pointed out then this is for sure functionality
that other users of the irq-sim code won't make use of. This is about
tracking the level of the gpio/irq line and the interrupt enable and raw
status bits that usually happen in hardware. The dummy iio driver won't
need that for sure as it only cares about triggering an irq and doesn't
even specify an irq type.
