For TYPE_GRLIB, the gpio chipselect parts relies on this series. It
would be great to get some feedback on that patch series as well.

Will do.

I'll be happy to do that. Was trying to adhere to the guide line to not
introduce something separately from its usage, but in this case it is
probably better to split things up a bit.

Will do.

Will fix.

Sure, I'll check that out.

I agree that it is ugly. If I move the cpm-related things from
spi-fsl-spi.c to a separate file that only gets linked on FSL_SOC and
have dummy functions in an h-file I think that it can be made much less

Thanks for the feedback!
