Thanks.

Ok. Do you still want the error reporting for the invalid width and
burst size?

Ok, would calling disable_irq before killing the tasklet an option for
you ? that would allow to keep the devm_request_irq.

Actually, I already do it, like you suggested previously. See
sun6i_kill_tasklet.

I'll also send patches for the various breakages and warnings spotted
