You know the hardware better than I. Is there a configuration or
identification register that will tell you how many spi bus instances
there are? Regardless, then number of instances the driver can
support should not be hard coded into the kernel config. If it is
hard coded, then the driver will not support running a single kernel
on both kinds of hardware.

I'm not sure what you mean. It sounds like you're talking about the
case where both this driver and spidev are compiled into the kernel
(not modules). Am I correct?

What is the problem that you're seeing with the init order? What is
the problem when spidev gets initialized before the driver?

Regardless, init order should not be an issue with merging
pch_spi_platform_devices and pch_spi_main into a single module.

which also loses any form of typechecking. Use a static inlines
please, even if it does mean 4 functions. Hmmm.... Actually, given
that this is just set/clear bit operation, I'd prefer to see the
macros removed entirely and the |= and &=~ written directly in the
code.

No. Since each spi bus instance is separate without any shared data
between them, the mutex should be per-instance. Move it into the
private data structure and initialize it in the probe routine with mutex_init().
