Agreed. One problem I see with this approach is that PDC interrupts will
have stats and affinity associated with them and that won't be the same
as the real GPIO interrupt which will also have stats and affinity, etc.

Ok. I don't see why we need to limit ourselves here. If a GPIO interrupt
isn't routed through PDC physically why does it matter? It shouldn't be
why we avoid hierarchical irq domains.

Alright, well then we need to never switch over while the irq is

Ah ok, that sort of makes having PDC act like MPM not work because
replaying from deep idle isn't going to work. I was relying on cpu
suspend state where only one CPU is online and irqs are disabled to be
the time when irqs are replayed. It's probably slower that way too on
PDC because we have to bounce through the replay and have another
register write for each GPIO interrupt.

It doesn't seem like they can be exactly the same because of deep idle
wakeup, so I suggest we go back to the beginning:

* Split PDC into two domains, one for GIC and one for TLMM and
associate the TLMM one with an irq_domain_bus_token enum so
that TLMM can look it up with irq_find_matching_host()

* Set TLMM as the child of the PDC TLMM domain

* Allocate irqs from TLMM and have those allocate in the parent domain
if the TLMM is in a hierarchy domain with irq_domain_alloc_irqs()

* When allocating an irq in TLMM's irqdomain::alloc function pass a
TLMM specific struct to irq_domain_alloc_irqs_parent() last argument

struct qcom_tlmm_fwspec {
bool mask;
struct irq_fwspec spec;

* Have the PDC driver set the mask bit and the MPM driver not set the
mask bit in the qcom_tlmm_fwspec above

* Have the TLMM driver use the mask bit to figure out if it should mask
or not mask the interrupt in the TLMM hardware

This way we can use the last argument to irq_domain_alloc_irqs_parent()
to communicate between the PDC/MPM drivers and the TLMM driver about how
the irq is being managed by the wakeup domain.

There will be some other functions to call for the hierarchy irq calls
in the TLMM code, specifically the set_type callback and the set_wake
callback need to call up to the parent irq domain so the MPM can trap
the set_wake calls to know what to monitor and the PDC can trigger
correctly. You can look at what Thierry has done for Tegra[1] and copy a
lot of that patch series.

The main difference is that on Tegra they have hardware replay the edge
vs. on qcom platforms we'll rely on the GIC SPI line for each PDC line
to go high and then have the hierarchy replay the interrupt. Also, on
Tegra they don't really care to allocate the irq in the GIC, whereas on
qcom we'll want to allocate the interrupt in the GIC to get the replay
to work. In the MPM design I think we'll need to use the
irq_set_irqchip_state() API too so the MPM driver can replay the edge
interrupts into the TLMM hardware when the MPM summary irq runs.
