I think for convert_buswidth() we can do away with a switch case and convert
the numbers directly

disable_irq also does syncronize, so it might work. But then again if the
probe fails after registering irq due to some other reason, and you get into
races with unitialized driver as well.

I think it might be easier to amnge by working with plain old request_irq()

Yes please, I havent seen the reports in detail yet, but they are reporting
mainly due COMPILE_TEST. DO you really want that?

Yes it did help me to compile for ARM, i didnt see any defconfig which has
this MACH in arm/configs
