I haven't tried the realloc path yet. Let's back up further so that we
are both starting with the same assumptions. Do you want to keep either
your proposed change (realloc argument) or the existing
irq_domain_disassociate change in mainline past the end of this patch
series? If it is going to continue to be a temporary shim that will be
reverted at the end of the patch series (like I did here), then I don't
see the point in this extra work since this patch is only here to keep
it bisectable and works. We're not using any legacy interfaces by the
end of this patch series.
