[PATCH 1/1] spi: pxa2xx: Enable SSP controller for CS toggle

From: Shobhit Srivastava
Date: Tue Feb 18 2020 - 08:49:17 EST

In some circumstances on Intel LPSS controllers, toggling the LPSS
CS control register doesn't actually cause the CS line to toggle.
This ruins SPI transactions that either rely on delay_usecs,
or toggle the CS line without sending any data.
This seems to be because the SSP controller is in disabled state.
As per the spec, the controller needs to be enabled for CS change
to take effect.
This issue is not seen in cases where there is data to be
transferred because then the SSCR0 gets enabled via
