Great, It looks beautiful, finally someone took a knife to the file 
'platform.c'.

I have been studied this place for a long time, and don't know what 
platform can return 0, which made me curious.

So the example should be:

      *        int irq = platform_get_irq(pdev, 0);
      *        if (irq <= 0)
      *            return irq;

Thanks,
