SubjectRe: [BUG] SPI broken for SPI based panel drivers

I tested spi-gpio on my system, by converting a built-in or hardware spi,
to a spi-gpio. Interestingly, the patch has the opposite effect on my system:
before the patch, spi-gpio did not work, but after it's applied, it does work.

Can you tell me the idle status of your chip-select gpio in debugfs?
# mount -t debugfs none /sys/kernel/debug
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/gpio
Look for something like this:
gpiochip0: GPIOs 0-31, parent: platform/209c000.gpio, 209c000.gpio:
gpio-17 ( |spi5 CS0 ) out hi ACTIVE LOW

Also, apply the following patch, and tell me
a) does this dev_err() get called on your system, and
b) what is the value when your chip is de-selected
