SubjectRe: [PATCH] spi: add spi_sync_single_transfer wrapper for single spi_transfer
Hi Lars,

Not much, but it keeps the code a bit nicer to read for those
using spi_sync_transfer with only one spi_transfer. Besides it's
also more understandable what the function itself does and there
would not be any need to jump into the spi_sync_transfer to check
what the number '1' is needed for (for example it's not a boolean
'true' value).

I checked and there are quite many uses of spi_sync_transfer with
only 1 transfer.

Thanks,
Andi
