Actually there is a previous report (in i.MX BSP) of CAAM job ring generating
an interrupt at probe time, between request_irq() and reset:

So yes, there might be cases when interrupts are pending.

There's some history here... (which is in contradiction with above-mentioned

Commit 9620fd959fb1 ("crypto: caam - handle interrupt lines shared across rings")
moved request_irq() before JR reset:
- resetting a job ring triggers an interrupt, so move request_irq
prior to jr_reset to avoid 'got IRQ but nobody cared' messages.

but IIUC that ("resetting a job ring triggers an interrupt") was actually
due to disabling the IRQ line using disable_irq() instead of masking
the interrupt in HW using JRCFGR_LS[IMSK].

The way JR reset sequence is implemented now - in caam_reset_hw_jr() - should not
trigger any interrupt.

Thus, it should be safe to move request_irq() after everything is set up,
at the end of probing.

My suggestion is to move both tasklet_init() and request_irq() at the bottom
of the probe callback.
However, I'd say this is a fix that should be marked accordingly and
should be posted either separately, or at the top of the patch set.
