I documented it in the commit message:

The m25p80-compatible boot flash and (some models) MMC use regular SPI,
bitbanged as required by the SoC. However the SPI-connected CPLD has
a "fast write" mode, in which two bits are transferred by SPI clock
cycle. The second bit is transmitted with the SoC's CS2 pin.

Protocol drivers using this fast write facility signal this by setting
the cs_change flag on transfers.

The cs_change flag is used here instead of the openwrt version's
spi_transfer.fast_write flag. The CPLD driver sets this flag on a
per-transfer basis.

I wish I could tell you more about it, but I only know what I found in this

No problem disabling the clock on error/remove, but PM doesn't seem worth
doing in this case -- the ath79 platform's clock enable/disable are just
dummy functions. The ar7100 series SoCs have no power management, it seems.

I have a patch addressing all your other comments.
