arch/powerpc/kvm/book3s_xics.c:	 * a pending interrupt, this is a SW error and PAPR sepcifies
arch/unicore32/include/mach/regs-gpio.h: * Sepcial Voltage Detect Reg GPIO_GPIR.
drivers/net/wireless/realtek/rtlwifi/wifi.h:/* Ref: 802.11i sepc D10.0
drivers/scsi/lpfc/lpfc_init.c:		/* Stop any OneConnect device sepcific driver timers */
drivers/staging/rtl8723bs/hal/rtl8723b_phycfg.c:* OverView:	Read "sepcific bits" from BB register
