Looking at this code I can't really see what's OMAP-specific about it -
exactly the same flow should apply to pretty much any SPI controller,
especially given that the code will happily ignore missing states.
We're just setting the idle state when not actively transferring data
which seems sensible and generic.

This suggests to me that we should be adding this code into the core,
probably joined up with the transfer_one_message stuff, so that any
hardware which has an idle state will be able to get the benefit. Can
anyone think of a reason why we shouldn't do that?
