    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.
