10 means 10M right?  That's not really a magic number.  It's fine.

I don't understand what you mean here.  For what it's worth this code
seems clear enough to me (except for the bad indenting of oct_csr_read().

It should be something like:
				data = oct_csr_read(BGX_SPU_BR_STATUS1(priv->node,
						priv->bgx, priv->index));

That's over the 80 char limit but so is the original code.
