^^ timing caught my attention. More below.

and this is not correct with core message loop. It will cause the chip 
select is toggled with each transfer in PIO mode. If there is no 
cs_change flag set then there shouldn't be CS toggling between the 
transfers if SPI message consists of multiple transfers.

More over this patch also will regress with DMA mode since there won't 
be CS deassert at all.

Timing reminded me I've seen two cases where there was a timing related 
glitch in CS output:

d0283eb2dbc1 ("spi: pxa2xx: Add output control for multiple Intel LPSS 
chip selects")
7a8d44bc89e5 ("spi: pxa2xx: Fix too early chipselect deassert")

Do you have a possibility to measure with an oscilloscope what goes 
wrong with the CS after d5898e19c0d7 ("spi: pxa2xx: Use core message 
processing loop")?

Can you share your setup if I can reproduce it here? E.g. SPI clock 
frequency, single or multiple CS, frequency of occurrence, etc
