right, to_irq is simple. However, there're some more stuff necessary for
gpio irq on this chip, since it has separate registers for GPIO
interrupt control and status. A further gpio chip might be needed
needed to get the stuff done. Hence I'd like to push out the most
importatn core funcationalities out for the first turn before I take a
deeper look into other stuffs.
