Subject[PATCH v2] mfd: stmfx: Uninitialized variable in stmfx_irq_handler()
The problem is that on 64bit systems then we don't clear the higher
bits of the "pending" variable. So when we do:

ack = pending & ~BIT(STMFX_REG_IRQ_SRC_EN_GPIO);
if (ack) {

the if (ack) condition relies on uninitialized data. The fix it that
I've changed "pending" from an unsigned long to a u32. I changed "n" as
well, because that's a number in the 0-10 range and it fits easily
inside an int. We do need to add a cast to "pending" when we use it in
the for_each_set_bit() loop, but that doesn't cause a proble, it's
