There is also a fourth patch pending to fix one last SoC, the r8a73a4.
My understanding is that should be the end of the problems that
we have been seeing in this area.

I believe that assumption is correct. shmobile does not use any
devices that have interrupts defined in setup-*.c or board-*.c when
booting using multiplatform.
