I don't understand what the irq_flags in the platform data is
there for other than being default 0. The trigger type is
specified by device tree or ACPI or similar so before forcing
it to LEVEL_LOW, ask the descriptor what flags it already have.

Without this my RMI4 touchscreen fails like this:
input: Synaptics TM1217 as /devices/rmi4-00/input/input2
genirq: Setting trigger mode 8 for irq 163 failed
rmi4_i2c 3-004b: Failed to register interrupt 163
rmi4_i2c: probe of 3-004b failed with error -22

And that is because my GPIO controller does not support level
IRQs, only edges. And that is also what is specified in the
device tree: interrupts = <20 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_FALLING>;
but it is not falling through to the driver because of this

This patch makes the driver respect the flags from the
IRQ subsystem and only shoehorn it into LEVEL_LOW if none
is specified.

Signed-off-by: Linus Walleij <>

This goes on top of the v3 patchset and was necessary
for my testing.

Feel free to apply this on top of the RMI4 patches OR
squash it into the series, I don't care as long as the
result works for me.

Ooops maybe I didn't compile the SPI driver. You probably need to
include <linux/irq.h> in rmi_spi.c too.

Tell me if I should send a new version of the patch or if it's OK
like this.
