Its only really this change I think that depends relates to the regmap/SPI
changes, it might be worth doing a separate series with the trivial
improvements to the SPI driver. As that allow that to get merged
quickly, and makes the series more focused and easy to review on
the more complex part of supporting the SPI hardwares weird CS/message
length quirk.
