i.MX6Q with kernel 4.13.0 panic on irq_request

Dear all,


I updated the source file of my i.MX6Q from kernel 4.4 to kernel 4.13 and since then my driver to handle the communication with our FPGA (connected with the WEIM bus) throws a kernel panic on the irq_request.

On kernel 4.4 everything was working properly.


I attached a part of the device tree and the kernel panic messages.


I am not an expert with device tree definition but the attached definition was working on 4.4


Here is the call to the irq_request function:


    irq = irq_of_parse_and_map(pdev->dev.of_node, 0);


    if(irq == NO_IRQ){
        printk(KERN_ERR "fpga: no irq\n");
        return -ENODEV;
    printk(KERN_INFO "fpga: irq = %d\n", irq);

    //ret = request_irq(irq, (void *)irq_read_handler, IRQF_TRIGGER_HIGH, "driver_fpga", (void *)irq_read_handler);
    ret = devm_request_irq(&pdev->dev, irq, (void *)irq_read_handler, IRQF_TRIGGER_HIGH, pdev->name, pdev);
    if(ret < 0){
        printk(KERN_ERR "fpga: irq request failed : %d\n", ret);
        return ret;


I tried both function (request_irq and devm_request_irq) and the result is the same.


Thanks for your help

Best regards
