There is new chip under development based on e200, which uses same mpic as in older PowerPC versions.
This patch was not just about suppressing the warning but warning was the observation that reserved region is getting accessed during init/uninit/save/restore. This patch was just an minor improvement to avoid these accesses. We will drop this series if this improvement is not convincing.
