Subject[v4.9 PATCH] spi: fsl-espi: avoid processing uninitalized data on error
When we get a spurious interrupt in fsl_espi_irq, we end up
processing four uninitalized bytes of data, as shown in this
warning message:

drivers/spi/spi-fsl-espi.c: In function 'fsl_espi_irq':
drivers/spi/spi-fsl-espi.c:462:4: warning: 'rx_data' may be used uninitialized in this function [-Wmaybe-uninitialized]

This adds another check so we skip the data in this case.

This is a bugfix that we should get into v4.9. It conflicts with
a rework of that function that is currently scheduled in spi-next
for v4.10, but is also required there in some form.

I suppose we also want this backported to -stable, as we also get
the warning in older kernels, and the patch that introduced
the condition apparently address to fix the hardware problem
that would now lead to incorrect data instead of an infinite loop.
