[PATCH] drivers/spi/atmel_spi.c: prevent premature irqs

From: Voss, Nikolaus
Date: Mon Apr 11 2011 - 03:10:29 EST

When restarting a kernel using kexec, filled rx buffers on SPI master
interface reliably crash the kernel. This patch disables rx interrupts
on startup to avoid this. Interrupts will be regulary enabled at start
of a new SPI master transfer.
