Sean, thanks a lot for the feedback! Will change this.

Yes, in original versions, SPP is enbled by a module param, so called
"static enable", considering the SPP bitmap pre-allocated is a bit
large, the from v3, it's changed to "dynamic enable", i.e., user
application need to enable SPP via init_spp IOCTL(later changed to via
ENABLE_CAP) to remove the pre-allocation, so the flag now is used to
cross-check SPP status between functions. Will change the name.

You're right, I'll re-order the patch to enable SPP bit in the last
patch, thanks!
