It is correct GIC only supports raising edge and active-high. The IRQ[0:5] on ls1021a are a bit special though.
They not directly connected to GIC, but there is an optional inverter, enabled by default. See RM for register SCFG_INTPCR.
If left to default, those pins get actually active-high internally.
There was a patch 2 years ago to add support for this inverter:
