Subject[PATCH] spi: Force the registration of the spidev devices
Date
spidev device registration has always been a controversial subject since the
move to DT.

Obviously, a spidev node has nothing to do in the DT, and the position so far
has been to add the compatible of the devices to drive through spidev to the
list of the compatibles spidev can handle.

While this is nicer than the DT solution because of its accurate hardware
representation, it's still not perfect because you might not have access to the
DT, or you might be driving a completely generic device (such as a
microcontroller) that might be used for something else in a different
context/board.

Solve this by registering automatically spidev devices for all the unused chip
selects when a master registers itself against the spi core.

This also adds an i2cdev-like feeling, where you get all the spidev devices all
the time, without any modification.
