Don't see how this would help (without duplicating more code).

Nope, it's statically set, at least so far.

What we could do is simply restarting ssp_int

I can move the commit log into the code.

Not sure if that can happen, but I guess it would be simpler and more
readable to simply do this instead:

	while (1) {
		/*
		 * If the device is not yet in RPM suspended state and we get an
		 * interrupt that is meant for another device, check if status
		 * bits are all set to one. That means that the device is
		 * already powered off.
		 */
		status = pxa2xx_spi_read(drv_data, SSSR);
		if (status == ~0)
			return ret;

		sccr1_reg = pxa2xx_spi_read(drv_data, SSCR1);

		/* Ignore RX timeout interrupt if it is disabled */
		if (!(sccr1_reg & SSCR1_TINTE))
			mask &= ~SSSR_TINT;

		/* Ignore possible writes if we don't need to write */
		if (!(sccr1_reg & SSCR1_TIE))
			mask &= ~SSSR_TFS;

		if (!(status & mask))
			return ret;

		if (!drv_data->master->cur_msg) {
			handle_bad_msg(drv_data);
			/* Never fail */
			return IRQ_HANDLED;
		}

		ret |= drv_data->transfer_handler(drv_data);
	}


i.e. preserve the current structure, just add the loop.
