Right It's the implementation which doesn't really make sense IMHO: it
always inverts the "enable" parameter (unless SPI_CS_HIGH is set), in
keeping with the default active-low.

So the docs are right, but "enable" doesn't match what it does. Chip select
assertion would be a better API here. Is it worth fixing?
