That is basically part of my question is the current setup doing
what it is intended to? The Samsung binding has controller-data
blocks on each of the slaves that specify the gpio for that

This part of the original patch adds the check, I guess the
mistake could be an assumption that of_find_property will
recursively check all the children, which it won't. This will
just check the controller node itself for a cs-gpio property but
as these are specified within sub-nodes they won't be found.
Hence currently you need to add one at the controller level.
