We're getting too much into details of how to handle simulated
interrupts and we can continue discussing it, but meanwhile I'd like
to address a different thing:

Thomas, Linus: after commit fa38869b0161 ("gpiolib: Don't support irq
sharing for userspace") some libgpiod tests are failing because we can
no longer depend on reading the value of a dummy GPIO after detecting
an interrupt to know the edge of the interrupt. While these interrupts
are triggered from debugfs and debugfs is not required to maintain
compatibility, I thing having a working test suite for the GPIO
subsystem and uAPI is worth applying these two patches and also the
previous one[1].

Can we have them applied for 4.20 or are there any objections?

Best regards,
Bartosz Golaszewski
