SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC 1/3] spi: Allow SPI controller override device buswidth
Hi John,

Thanks for your patch!

Indeed.

I feel this is a bit dangerous, and might bite us one day.

Can't acpi_register_spi_device() obtain that info from DMI tables,
to avoid contaminating the generic code?

This could just be moved to acpi_register_spi_device(), right?

And I'd be happy if we could avoid adding this here ;-)
