yes, it is a workaround, but appears to violate some policies.
E.g. the spi-cs-high; is undocumented but DT bindings maintainer
seems to be against documenting it as I had proposed in my
other patch.

Rather he seems to have proposed a white-list in the driver code.
So that the legacy mode is only becoming active for those systems
which really need the legacy mode instead of everyone.

Then, we do not need this patch for GTA04.

So its up to you to decide which way to go. We are happy with
any one that makes mainline work again asap...

BR and thanks,
