There is no standard binding for an "spi" device type.  I have no
idea which of various "SPI" kind of devices is meant here; and none
of the ones I know of have anything to do with ATA anyway.

In short, it probably is incorrect.

Also, in general, you shouldn't use "device_type" in flat device
trees (the main exceptions are: some/most bus nodes, cpu nodes,
some other "standard" nodes).

I imagine the ata quirk would ask the arch or platform code about
the interrupts used; it in turn can query the device tree.
