I got the warning from checkpatch as well, and since this is an
interrupt source which is truly random and we really *want* to sample
for some IRQ randomness I do want that functionality in there.

However the fucntions to be used instead,
rand_initialize_irq() + add_interrupt_randomness() aren't used
anywhere else in the kernel than in the interrupt driver core.

But I don't mind being first ... if you upload your git tree to I'll make a patch to reenable this the right way.
(Or I can rewrite the previous patch, your choice.)
