You are not supposed to fiddle with parent data at all. Just because C
allows you is no excuse to violate abstractions in the first place.

irq_chip_request_resources_parent() rightfully returns -ENOSYS when it
can't request a resource from the parent chip because that chip does not
have anything to offer.

It's up to the caller to do something sensible with the return code. If
your chip is happy with the parent not providing it then handle
-ENOSYS. None of the chip callbacks should return -ENOSYS. If one does
then that wants to be fixed.
