Please note that the irq number is also intended to pass this
information:

Of course, most of snd_mpu401_uart_new()'s users get this wrong and use
0 instead of -1, relying on the irq_flags parameter only. But if these
are fixed to use irq == -1, we get the same effect without having to
introduce another parameter.
