pinctrl: sunxi: use chained_irq_{enter, exit} for GIC compatibility
On tha Allwinner A20 SoC, the external interrupts on the pin controller device are connected to the GIC. Without chained_irq_{enter, exit}, external GPIO interrupts, such as used by mmc core card detect, cause the system to hang. This issue was first encountered during my attempt to get out-of-band interrupts for WiFi on the Cubietruck working. With David's new series of sunci-mci using mmc slot-gpio for (GPIO interrupt based) card detection, removing the SD card also causes my Cubietruck to hang. This problem should extend to all Allwinner A20 based boards. With this fix, the system no longer hangs when I remove or insert the SD card. /proc/interrupts show that the interrupt has correctly fired. However the system still does not detect card removal/insertion. I believe this is another unrelated issue.
