geode-mfgpt: restore previous behavior for selecting IRQ

The MFGPT IRQ used to be, in order of decreasing priority,
* IRQ supplied by the user as a boot-time parameter,
* IRQ previously set by the BIOS or another driver,
* default IRQ given at compile time.

Return to this behavior, which got broken when splitting the
MFGPT/clocksource driver for 2.6.33-rc1.

Hi Andres,

a bit more detail. Up to 2.6.32 the MFGPT IRQ was chosen like this:

static int irq;
static int __init mfgpt_setup(char *str)
get_option(&str, &irq);
return 1;
__setup("mfgpt_irq=", mfgpt_setup);
/* Choose IRQ: if none supplied, keep IRQ already set or use default */
if (!*irq)
*irq = (zsel >> shift) & 0xF; // may have been set by the BIOS
if (!*irq)
*irq = MFGPT_DEFAULT_IRQ; // #defined as 7

The code in 2.6.33-rc3 after the MFGPT/clocksource split looks like this:

static int timer_irq = CONFIG_CS5535_MFGPT_DEFAULT_IRQ; // defaults to 7
module_param_named(irq, timer_irq, int, 0644);
if (!*irq)
*irq = (zsel >> shift) & 0xF; // gets ignored now
if (!*irq)
*irq = CONFIG_CS5535_MFGPT_DEFAULT_IRQ; // again!?

The patch removes the first of the two ocurrances of
CONFIG_CS5535_MFGPT_DEFAULT_IRQ, reverting the IRQ selection to the previous
(working) behavior.

BTW, while looking into this I stumbled upon the fact that cs5535_mfgpt_init()
doesn't free up the timer in the error path if cs5535_mfgpt_setup_irq() or
setup_irq() fail. However, some comments in cs5535-mfgpt.c (stating that it's
not possible to release the individual timer hardware) make me think this might
have been skipped on purpose? Could you please have a look?
