Ideally we would create something generic that has been on my
mind for some time, like a generic GPIO regmap irqchip now that
there are a few controllers like that.

I don't know how feasible it is or how much work it would be. But
as with GPIO_GENERIC (for MMIO) it would be helpful since we
can then implement things like .set_multiple() and .get_multiple()
for everyone.
