Since you say reverting the "set min/max speed" patch fixes your issues
could you try raising the spi clock like this and see if it works for you?

+ assigned-clocks = <&cru SCLK_SPI1>;
+ assigned-clock-rates = <400000000>;

Of course the driver shouldn't let you configure the spi-controller in a way
that makes it skip bytes, but if this works for you then I still think
you're better off explicitly setting the spi clock speed rather than having
the driver raise it for you. At least while it does it without
checking for errors
or having a way to lower it again as outlined in the commit message.
