I would expect a new_id file to allow a new device identifier to be
added to a driver at runtime but this isn't doing that, it's specifying
by bus and chip select instead which is totally different to how we
normally bind SPI devices. That seems likely to cause confusion down
the line. I'd expect to be able to supply a DT compatible string or a
Linux SPI ID.
