Was that a question for me? TBH thats how other interrupt drivers doing
it for now. And it would be the users who need to be fixed, right? Or
even the platform code? Because it will complain with

[    2.962990] irq: no irq domain found for interrupt-controller@1c !
[    2.975762] gpio-keys buttons0: Found button without gpio or irq
[    2.981872] gpio-keys: probe of buttons0 failed with error -22
