This is a driver not a slave implementation, it should be with the other
drivers in the Kconfig.  The slave implementations are for the
functionality that uses the drivers, not the drivers themselves.

This seems weird - it looks like it's changing the endianess of the
protocol based on the endianness the processor is running in.  What's
going on here?  I'd expect the driver to be just treating everything as
a byte stream and letting the protocol driver handle the endianness
issues, otherwise we might end up with double converions.

Why is there a cast to void here?  That's usually a sign that there's a
type safety issue, the whole point with void is that it's compatible
with any other pointer.

Are you sure that this is the right thing to do if we get a spurious
interrupt - the normal thing would be to return IRQ_NONE, possibly
logging a warning as well?

If there's an interrupt that doesn't have any of the interrupt status
flags set I'd expect to see a warning and probably IRQ_NONE being
returned.  That way if the interrupt line is shared we work correctly
and if something goes wrong and the interrupt gets stuck on then the
core interrupt code's error handling can kick in.
