[PATCH v2] spi: altera: Add empty implementation of setup_transfer callback

From: Pelle Nilsson
Date: Thu Apr 09 2015 - 11:54:32 EST

spi-altera driver is broken and causes a kernel panic due to a NULL
pointer dereference during first SPI transaction. The setup_transfer()
bitbang callback is mandatory when the txrx_bufs() callback is
present. It was therefore an error to remove it in commit
30af9b558a56. This patch simply adds back an empty implementation of
the callback.
