The RSB controller has two registers for controlling interrupt inputs:
RSB_INTE, which has bits for each possible interrupt, and the global
interrupt enable bit in RSB_CTRL.

Currently, we enable the bits in RSB_INTE before each transfer, but this
is unnecessary because we never disable them. Move the initialization of
RSB_INTE so it is done only once.

We also set the global interrupt enable bit before each transfer. Unlike
other bits in RSB_CTRL, this bit is cleared by writing a zero. Thus, we
clear the bit in the post-timeout cleanup code, so note that in the

However, if we do receive an interrupt, we do not clear the bit. Nor do
we clear interrupt statuses before starting a transfer. Thus, if some
other driver uses the RSB bus while Linux is suspended (as both Trusted
Firmware and SCP firmware do to control the PMIC), we receive spurious
interrupts upon resume. This causes false completion of a transfer, and
the next transfer starts prematurely, causing a LOAD_BSY condition. The
end result is that some transfers at resume fail with -EBUSY.

With this patch, all transfers reliably succeed during/after resume.
