Well its the write to SIMR that needs a sync before enabling external
interrupts, not the sipnr variable.

Don't agree, I believe the missing sync is a bug. I talked a Motorola
FAE yesterday and he says the same thing. It doesn't really matter if
you have the 8260 as a slave or not.

What does the maintainers of this code (Tom Rini?) think about it?
