The OOPS was possible only with Bartlomiej's patch because he changed
the MFD driver probe function to skip IRQ setup on lack of interrupts.
In current state the OOPS should not happen so mentioning OOPS in commit
message may be misleading. Maybe just don't put the OOPS here?

Anyway the patch looks good and a check for non-null
regmap_irq_chip_data is still a valid precaution so:
