I noticed the pr_fmt definition later; that adds some useful context I
didn't know about.  I guess there's no struct device for the GIC?  I
don't see one in struct device_node.  Seems like this piece of
hardware that apparently responds to a memory range *could* have a
struct device, but I'm a little fuzzy on how we handle ACPI and OF
device descriptions in that regard.

I hadn't noticed the memory range part; maybe you could use %pR there?

Just to double-check, there's no off-by-one error in the SPI range, is
there?  The pattern I usually expect is "start, start + nr_items - 1".

I'm just kibbitzing here; this isn't PCI code, and you don't need my
ack, so just consider these as random observations.
