May I point you to this thread?

(The issue comes up once in a while as some archs still use NO_IRQ, some with
0 some with -1)

Try a 'cd arch' before that :)

Well, I assume that issues regarding checkpatch do not have the highest
priority (especially while the merge-window is open), which is understandable.
Fixing this bug (I take any bets that this is one ;)) might not be so trivial,
as modifying $Attributes can easily have lots of side-effects.

Now, all this does not matter much, as the objections Grant raised are valid
and there might be a totally different outcome to bind devices to UIO. But at
least, we have some code to discuss...
