Subject: [PATCH 4.9 047/130] mtd: nand: lpc32xx: fix invalid error handling of a requested irq

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Vladimir Zapolskiy <>

commit cf9e1672a66c49ed8903c01b4c380a2f2dc91b40 upstream.

Semantics of NR_IRQS is different on machines with SPARSE_IRQ option
disabled or enabled, in the latter case IRQs are allocated starting
at least from the value specified by NR_IRQS and going upwards, so
the check of (irq >= NR_IRQ) to decide about an error code returned by
platform_get_irq() is completely invalid, don't attempt to overrule
irq subsystem in the driver.

The change fixes LPC32xx NAND MLC driver initialization on boot.

Fixes: 8cb17b5ed017 ("irqchip: Add LPC32xx interrupt controller driver")
