Subject: [media] media: rc: nuvoton: ignore spurious interrupt when logical 
device is being disabled
Author:  Heiner Kallweit <>
Date:    Sun Jul 31 10:42:55 2016 -0300

When removing module nuvoton-cir I get a fifo overrun warning.
It turned out to be caused by a spurious interrupt when the logical CIR
device is being disabled (although no interrupt source bit being set).
Reading the interrupt status register returns 0xff, therefore the fifo
overrun bit is mistakenly interpreted as being set.

Fix this by ignoring interrupts when interrupt source and status register
reads return 0xff.
