Hi Marc,

Thank you for the review.

The free callback is used in patch 5/5 where free is overridden by
rzg2l_gpio_irq_domain_free. I just gave an example there as an
populate_parent_alloc_arg() In actual in the child_to_parent_hwirq
callback I am using a bitmap [0] to get a free tint slot, this bitmap
needs freeing up when the GPIO interrupt is released from the driver
that as when overridden free callback frees the allocated tint slot so
that its available for re-use.

you mean gpio core itself should handle the fwspec allocation/freeing?
