Please don't use the notation IRQn - this is normally used when
referring to interrupt numbers (such as those seen in
/proc/interrupts) rather than a per-device interrupt index.
Grep for IRQ% in drivers/ for many examples.

dev_err(&dev->dev, "IRQ index %u not found: %d\n", num, ret);

would be better - note also the use of %u for unsigned integers.
Using %d for them is IMHO sloppy coding.

RMK's Patch system:
FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line in suburbia: sync at 12.1Mbps down 622kbps up
According to 11.9Mbps down 500kbps up
