Subject: [PATCH] b44-ssb: Fix IRQ routing bits on the backplane

The backplane on the b44 chip seems to have a silicon bug
in the IRQ routing. The ethernet core IRQ routing does not work
with the routing bit returned from the backplaneflag register.
This patch adds a workaround for the b44 chip to use a hardcoded
constant. This constant was also used in the old b44 driver.

Please apply this to wireless-dev.
This is also most likely the bug Uwe Bugla was
bullshitting about^W^Wreporting.
