Hi Moritz - yeah I figured someone might have a driver in the works.

I think my set_cs() function is ok-ish. It's copied from spi_set_cs() in
drivers/spi/spi.c . This function is a static internal helper, so I
copy/pasted the function into the ice40 driver. Given that it's only
4-lines of code, it didn't seem too bad - though I'm not exactly sure
why spi_set_cs() isn't a public API. It seems like quite a common-place
thing to need to do with certain devices.

However, perhaps the function is internal because the authors of the SPI
framework foresaw how easy it would be to screw up a shared bus with
that function. I had to take care to make sure the SPI bus was locked

Do you agree that it's the right thing to copy the function in? Or do
you think it would be better to ask for spi_set_cs to be exposed publicly?

Best Regards
