So, what would be the right fix up? I my patch it's not good idea since some other driver can request pin for other 
peripheral earlier than spi. In board dts it could be new investigating for someone else who don't know this issue. I 
think the best way would be request all cs in early spi init since cs depends on each other and must be all of them in 
right state before any communication on bus. They are part of bus, like miso, mosi, clk, not part of chips. Also they 
are defined in parent spi node, not in child chip node.
Am I right?
