SPARC does not use OF_IRQ and has a different implementation of
irq_of_parse_and_map than the one in drivers/of/irq.c. All code
converted from irq_of_parse_and_map to devm_irq_of_parse_and_map in this
patch set will be unlinkable for SPARC. This includes SPI in general and
many drivers that are used for SPARC (of which several are currently
only used on SPARC platforms).

Best regards,
Andreas Larsson
