pinctrl: qcom: Assign irq_eoi conditionally

The hierarchical parts of MSM pinctrl/GPIO is only
used when the device tree has a "wakeup-parent" as
a phandle, but the .irq_eoi is anyway assigned leading
to semantic problems on elder Qualcomm chipsets.

When the drivers/mfd/qcom-pm8xxx.c driver calls
chained_irq_exit() that call will in turn call chip->irq_eoi()
which is set to irq_chip_eoi_parent() by default on a
hierachical IRQ chip, and the parent is pinctrl-msm.c
so that will in turn unconditionally call
irq_chip_eoi_parent() again, but its parent is invalid
so we get the following crash:

 Unnable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at
 virtual address 00000010
 pgd = (ptrval)
 [00000010] *pgd=00000000
 Internal error: Oops: 5 [#1] PREEMPT SMP ARM
 PC is at irq_chip_eoi_parent+0x4/0x10
 LR is at pm8xxx_irq_handler+0x1b4/0x2d8

If we solve this crash by avoiding to call up to
irq_chip_eoi_parent(), the machine will hang and get
reset by the watchdog, because of semantic issues,
probably inside irq_chip.

As a solution, just assign the .irq_eoi conditionally if
we are actually using a wakeup parent.
