Yes, I've looked briefly at your patch and it seemed that GPIO_REGMAP
might fit here which will reduce code.

Its just another abstraction layer in between. For MMIO it will also
end up using some variant of the above (see regmap-mmio.c). But if you
use regmap, you can also use REGMAP_IRQ which might also be a fit
for your GPIO controller and thus don't have to implement your own
versions for the irq_chip ops.
