I'd poke the SPI maintainers about what their reasoning was to make it
non-public,
and how they'd go about doing what you're trying to do.
I can imagine there might be some SPI controllers where the above
doesn't work well,
because the controller automatically handles the CS line and you don't
get control over it.

Cheers,

Moritz
