This controller is meant to be used only with flash devices.
The flash devices' supported width will be reflected in a table in MTD layer.
When selecting, priority is given to quad over dual and single in the MTD and
it will send commands using the supported tx/rx bus width accordingly.
About the supported bus width on board, tx-bus-width and rx-bus-width
properties in dts will have the info; which I believe spi core uses.
