MIPS: MSC: Prevent out-of-bounds writes to MIPS SC ioremap'd region
Previously, the lower limit for the MIPS SC initialization loop was set incorrectly allowing one extra loop leading to writes beyond the MSC ioremap'd space. More precisely, the value of the 'imp' in the last loop increased beyond the msc_irqmap_t boundaries and as a result of which, the 'n' variable was loaded with an incorrect value. This value was used later on to calculate the offset in the MSC01_IC_SUP which led to random crashes like the following one: CPU 0 Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address e75c0200, epc == 8058dba4, ra == 8058db90 [...] Call Trace: [<8058dba4>] init_msc_irqs+0x104/0x154 [<8058b5bc>] arch_init_irq+0xd8/0x154 [<805897b0>] start_kernel+0x220/0x36c Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task!
