Ack, Will move them as part of v2.

I don't think commenting is needed here as there is nothing special in
this type of access.

I don't see this is common to comment the use of the _relaxed accessors.

This driver is for SoC using arm64 cpu.

If one uses the non-relaxed version of readl while running on arm64, he
shall cause read barrier, which is then doing dsm(ld).. This barrier is
not needed here, so we spare the use of the more heavy readl in favor of
the less "harmful" one.

Let me know what you think.

Ack, Will simplify them in v2.

Ack, Will replace them with platform_get_irq() in v2.
