I think I have fixed the problem and the root cause is the our NFC's TX
FIFO counter
do a unnecessary reset in CS control function. Our NFC implement
read-write
buffer transfer to send command, address and data.
A unnecessary reset to TX FIFO will send a command byte out first and this
extra
command will make something wrong to next operation.

For now, doing CS# control in ->exec_op() is OK to me.

thanks & best regards,
