My first guess was to support multiple CS, but you can't have multiple
active SPI slaves at the same time.

Perhaps it's because the bitbang core may call the .chipselect() callback
multiple times with is_on == BITBANG_CS_ACTIVE, and obviously the
clock should be enabled/disabled only once?
The current code doesn't seem to do that, but perhaps it was different when
the sh-msiof driver was written?

Ah, there's also the initial .chipselect(..., BITBANG_CS_INACTIVE) call
in spi_bitbang_setup(), which should not disable the clock.
But it should still call sh_msiof_spi_set_pin_regs() and set the optional
GPIO CS. Which is no longer done after my series. I'll fix that.

Magnus, do you remember the rationale for the test_and_set_bit()?

Anyway, it seems safe to remove it, as .(un)prepare_message() is
guaranteed to be called in matching pairs.

As you mention yourself, all of this code existed before. It just got moved,
to make the conversion to the SPI core message handling easier.
If you don't mind, I'd like to defer these, and tackle runtime PM later.
