According to this description, I fail to see how one would specify
a missing interrupt for one of the pins that is not the last one in
the list.

All GPIO_DS8..GPIO_DS13 are configured as external IRQ by default. So
if anyone want to use one of them as gpio mode, they can drop add the
sbgpio node to their DTB board-specific, and remove that GPIO from
interrupts property. As example below I want to leave GPIO_DS8 as gpio
mode, so I remove it as below:

/* Board-specific: exclude GPIO_DS8 to leave it as GPIO */
&sbgpio {
       interrupts =    <0x0 0x29 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS9 */
                       <0x0 0x2a 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS10 */
                       <0x0 0x2b 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS11 */
                       <0x0 0x2c 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS12 */
                       <0x0 0x2d 0x1>;         /* GPIO_DS13 */
}

This would be a very unusual binding, because that requires the driver
to know the contents of the properties in advance and the driver
cannot derive the function of an irq from the position in the array.

Please come up with another approach that is more like other drivers
do this and that makes it possible to reuse the driver if the
interrupt numbers change.

The GPIO standby doesn't support interrupt controller itself, it only
wires the GPIO line to the external IRQ of GIC. So it is not similar
to other driver. Each GPIO is fixed to GIC IRQ index, and never
change.

Is that possible if we change to this approach:
- Keep all GPIO as GPIO mode by default.
- If anyone want to use them as interrupt, they must add the interrupt
node to DT specific-board below:

Example to configure GPIO_DS11, 12, 13 as external irq:

&sbgpio {
        interrupts = <0x0 0x2b 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS11 */
                        <0x0 0x2c 0x1>,         /* GPIO_DS12 */
                        <0x0 0x2d 0x1>;         /* GPIO_DS13 */

That is not relevant here, what matters is just that each IRQ still
has a very specific function, which is basically what every driver
does.

That is exactly the same as you have in your patch. You should
always list all interrupts that the gpio controller is wired
to, whether they are used or not.

Ideally, the driver just decides at runtime how to wire that
mux, based on how the gpio is configured by the client driver.
If the client asks for an interrupt (with gpio_to_irq) and is
it is configured as an input, then you connect it to the GIC,
otherwise you leave it to be handled by the gpio chip itself.
Any reason you can't do that?

As I just explained, the GPIO Standby doesn't support the interrupt.
Both interrupts are came from GIC, so if the client asks for an
interrupt, it will go to the GIC driver (not GPIO Standby driver), so
that's my trouble. We can not implement the code to configured the
GPIO standby at GIC driver.

So you are saying we merged a binding that is incapable of describing
the hardware? If that is the case, we may have to go back to
the drawing board and come up with a working binding.

One part that I don't understand yet is how the driver handles
irqs to start with, as it does not register a nested irq domain
or irqchip, so I'm guessing that client drivers cannot actually
use the IRQ functionality. Is that right?

It also seems to me that the binding cannot distinguish between a
line configured as an input and one that is configured as an
interrupt, which are for other gpio chips the same thing, but
not on this one.  Could this be rectified by using another bit
of the second gpio cell? The low bit is used for active-high/active-low,
so you could use the second bit for irq/input.

For our case the irq_domain is in irq-gic driver, the GPIO driver only
is responsible to wire 2 the external irq of GIC to GPIO pin.

Example for configure GPIO_DS13 as interrupt and use as button with
the current gpio driver:
        gpio-keys {
                compatible = "gpio-keys";
                button@1 {
                        label = "POWER";
                        linux,code = <116>;
                        linux,input-type = <0x1>;
                        interrupts = <0x0 0x2d 0x1>;
                };
        };

Do you mean #gpio-cells property and using the high bit of the second
bit for irq/input  ?

Wait, this looks wrong: the gpio driver doesn't actually see
the connection here and won't be able to configure the interrupt
correctly. The interrupt is already owned by the gpio driver, so
you cannot use it in the button node.

Yes, that would be an option.

In summary:
- Our GPIO doesn't support interrupt controller.
- There are 6 pins which used the external interrupt from GIC, so all
setup for those irqs are from gic driver. The GPIO driver only
configure to wire those lines.

For your concern:
- That's correct: if we use that defined, the gpio driver never saw
the connection here (That's why it already is configued at the
beginning).
- At the first time, we tried to use the define: <&sbgpio 13 1>, it
means using the GPIO_DS13, it will go into the GPIO driver to setup,
but there is another problem which I have sent out to all of you:
+ It will go into gpio_keys_setup_key (gpio_keys.c driver) function,
then set the irqflags = IRQF_TRIGGER_RISING | IRQF_TRIGGER_FALLING,
but the gic only support IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH && IRQF_TRIGGER_RISING,
so it always returns failed at gpio_keys_setup_key function. Please
see the gic_set_type at gic driver.

static int gic_set_type(struct irq_data *d, unsigned int type)
{
        void __iomem *base = gic_dist_base(d);
        unsigned int gicirq = gic_irq(d);

        /* Interrupt configuration for SGIs can't be changed */
        if (gicirq < 16)
                return -EINVAL;

        /* SPIs have restrictions on the supported types */
        if (gicirq >= 32 && type != IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH &&
                            type != IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_RISING)
                return -EINVAL;

        return gic_configure_irq(gicirq, type, base, NULL);
}
+ Another issue: in order gpio_key works it needs the status of GPIO.
For our chip, when the GPIO is configued as interrupt, we need to
access to GIC register to read the real status, it is not acceptable
to implement accessing GIC registers at gpio driver. The function
irq_get_irqchip_state(..) also doesn't work in our chip too. Because
it needs to access different offset.

I will look into it.

Is there possible if:
- Keep GPIO8..GPIO as interrupt by default.
- Anyone want to use these GPIO pins as GPIO, we will re-configure
them to GPIO mode ?

Hmm, I see now how the event handling in the gpio-keys driver differs
between irq mode and gpio mode, where gpio mode relies on getting
a separate event for the release. This is certainly something that
could be changed in the gpio-keys driver as an extension, but that
seems to be what Laxman Dewangan did when he introduced the irq-mode.

I thought we had solved that problem long ago when you first
submitted the driver.

Did 1b7047edfcfb25 ("genirq: Allow the irqchip state of an IRQ to be
save/restored") not address the problem for you? You were on
Cc to that patch and should have spoken up when the code that was
merged was not sufficient.

That's not perfect but better than the patch you sent here.
The main disadvantage is that you end up with two references
to the same IRQ. It can still work, but only as long as nothing
tries to walk the entire DT to parse all the interrupts properties.

It would be ok for gpio-keys, as that does not need both the state
and the event together, but for other gpio users, you still need a
working driver that supports reading the state and getting an
interrupt.

Yes, I am in this mail-list too, but I also had a issue on this, I
think you are still in my submitted for this.
Currently, irq_get|set_irqchip_state(..) supports access to
GIC_DIST_ENABLE_SET, GIC_DIST_ACTIVE_SET, GIC_DIST_PENDING_SET. But
our hw only has the valid value at SPISR register ("[PATCH v4 2/3]
irqchip: GIC: Add support for irq_{get,set}_irqchip_state"), so I
still can not use it.

In irq mode, if I reconfigured that gpio pin to gpio mode, then
reading -> the value is valid.
Could I do that way badly ? It means switch to gpio mode to read
value, then switch back to  irq mode.

I don't see any downsides of this at the moment, other than it being
a bit slow. As long as we don't try to do any high-speed communication
over this gpio line, that seems like the best workaround given the
various constraints of the hardware.

And I asked Feng Kan to explain *why* it doesn't work, but nobody ever
bothered giving me a straight answer on that:

https://www.mail-archive.com/linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org/msg892972.html

The GIC400 TRM explicitly states that reading GICD_SPISRn is the same as
reading GICD_ICPENDRn. if that doesn't work for you please explain why.

If I can get a reasonable explanation on *why* it doesn't work, then we
can look at having an X-Gene specific workaround.

Thanks,
