actually, there is the imx25 platform:
in arch/arm/plat-mxc/include/mach/mx25.h
line 61 :
#define MX25_INT_CSPI3 0
this is the interrupt assigned for CSPI3.

I doubled check with the imx25 release manual chapter 3.1 (page 51):
And I made some spi test on the imx25 3stack PDK, the CSPI3 is working
with irq 0.
