Hi Jeff,

We are submitting a patch to do the test before accessing A_PL_CLI register in interrupt routine for inclusion in 2.6.28, 
as follows:



Thanks,
Wendy

First, missing Signed-off-by:

Second, this is recidulious.

Every single interrupt we're going to check this error state value.  That's excessive,
and this is a performance critical fast path.

I do not want to see this begin to be a trend in the drivers, so I'm rejecting this
right now before it starts to spread.

If you want to handle this case, do something like quiesce the interrupt handler and
disable it when an error is detected.  That kind of scheme, at worst, will have the
same kinds of races that this silly test does.
