While working on a SoC with CODA980 (currently not supported by the driver), I came across some low-hanging fruit that looked worth addressing.
Patch 1 is just a cosmetic change to print a different "more standard" device registered message, if such thing exists. Patches 2 to 4 address unneeded usage of threaded interrupt and deferred worker. Careful code inspection shows the interrupt can be serviced on a normal handler. In this regard, the driver is still waiting for job completion in the .device_run hook, which the framework already does. Therefore, there are two waits: one in the driver, one in the mem2mem core. Please note that I'm not addressing this for now. Finally, patch 5 clears a hardware register called INT_REASON. Without this clearing the firmware has been found to get stuck on our CODA980. I believe this fix might be useful to carry upstream, because it's so small and we have some indications that it's actually the right thing to do.
