Hi Phil,

Yes, that makes it unexportable the way it is done yet. What I suggest is not 
overriding the struct rb532_gpio_chip with thoses callbacks, but do like you 
suggested initially.

This should be moved the IRQ handler, where a specific check for the IRQ being 
a GPIO one should set the interrupt status and level accordingly.
