I'm just saying that, since you switch to a solution that goes through
the GPIO framework to control the data bus, making sure the the pin
direction change is done only once when reading/writing several bytes is
something you can do after/when transitioning to the new approach.

So yes, I suggest to re-order patches, except that this patch won't
look the same at all if you move it after the "use the GPIO consumer
API to control data bus" patch.
