I don't think that can work either: aside of not solving the problem
of wilink devices on spi controllers that don't use gpio, it also doesn't
solve the problem of what happens when the driver manually triggers the
gpio to hold the CS signal while another driver talks to a different
device using another CS on the same controller.
