Hi Tony,

I've seen you have merged the patches that you mentioned into Greg's
tree. I have now rebased my patches on top, including the separate SPI
driver. Once we merge those, it should work fine, and having multiple
front-end drivers gives a nice template for adding future hardware
specific variations like another bus, or a newer model on the same
bus. I'll post my patches after some more testing.
