Just to look at it from a different perspective: we have a project
whose tests rely on a behavior that was changed by Uwe's patch. While
the patch is fine, we need to find a correct way of testing the GPIO
user API. This may take a long time. In order to not break the tests
of an external project in 4.20 I propose to patch the interrupt
simulator (a component only used for testing) for now and to revisit
it later without time pressure.

Best regards,
