    Subject[PATCH] ata: Fix build error in pata_of_platform (NO_IRQ usage)
    This patch makes a band-aid fix the following build failure:

    CC drivers/ata/pata_of_platform.o
    drivers/ata/pata_of_platform.c: In function 'pata_of_platform_probe':
    drivers/ata/pata_of_platform.c:55:13: error: 'NO_IRQ' undeclared (first use in this function)
    drivers/ata/pata_of_platform.c:55:13: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in

    The proper fix (stop OF code from returning NO_IRQ values) is pending.

    Here is the story:

    - NO_IRQ is evil[1], AFAIR the trend is to remove its usage completely;
    - Sane arches (x86) don't use it at all, or have it defined to 0
    - On another arches it is either -1 or whatever random value;
    - The NO_IRQ disease spreads despite our willingness, even within
    the new OF code.

    The new irq domain stuff (that is used on ARM) always returns 0
    in 'no irq' case, so we may easily remove it.

    So the proper fix would be two-fold: for OF and for that driver.
    But this is for 3.3 kernels. I'll send the two patches as follow-ups.

    In the meantime, the band-aid (for 3.2) is down below.
