I am sorry for not being very attentive, I have been travelling.
I collected the most urgent fixes and this was fixed as part of
that quick patchup.

OK please verify that we are doing things right now, the big
worry I have is some interrim DTBs that use the GPIO flag
GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH, which is zero and therefore often the
default, and expect it to actually work, while the SPI bindings
by definition will ignore that and make the line active low.

I'm not very happy about this but it is a result of how we quickly
implemented some bindings in the past while the GPIO flags
were not yet standardized.
