Are you using a 9x5ek board or a custom one, in the latter case could
you paste your spi0 node definition ?

If you want PA14 to control cs1 and PA22 to control cs0 (both
configured as GPIOs), you'll have the following definition:

cs-gpios = <&pioA 22 0>, <&pioA 14 0>, <0>, <0>;

Take a look at [1], which is set as the gpio_request_enable callback,
called by pinctrl core when a gpio is requested.
