Subject: [PATCH v3 -net-next] ravb: Add missing free_irq() calls to ravb_close()

When reopening the network device on ra7795/salvator-x, e.g. after a
DHCP timeout:

    IP-Config: Reopening network devices...
    genirq: Flags mismatch irq 139. 00000000 (eth0:ch0:rx_be) vs. 00000000 (ravb e6800000.ethernet eth0: cannot request IRQ eth0:ch0:rx_be
    IP-Config: Failed to open eth0
    IP-Config: No network devices available

The "mismatch" is due to requesting an IRQ that is already in use,
while IRQF_PROBE_SHARED wasn't set.

However, the real cause is that ravb_close() doesn't release any of the
R-Car Gen3-specific secondary IRQs.

Add the missing free_irq() calls to fix this.

Fixes: f51bdc236b6c5835 ("ravb: Add dma queue interrupt support")
Signed-off-by: Geert Uytterhoeven <>
Acked-by: Sergei Shtylyov <>
This version is against today's net-next.git.

  - Add Acked-by,
  - Rebase against net-next.git, which has received a partial fix
    through net.git,

  - Clearly state which version this patch is against,
  - Add Fixes tags.
