on a veyron-pinky-rev2, with
cros-ec-spi spi0.0: using proto v3
cros-ec-spi spi0.0: no PD chip found: -19

Tested-by: Heiko Stuebner <>

with the catch of the device needing two additional patches from the Chromeos-

c7ae1e2ef996 mfd: cros ec: spi: put the delay and send msg in one cycle
8558460450c1 mfd: cros ec: spi: Add delay for asserting CS

and I'm not sure if they are submitted yet.
