Subject: [PATCH 0/3] spi: SPI bus multiplexer

Hi All,

I have a hardware design where a single SPI chip select is steered by a
GPIO being asserted or de-asserted. On older kernels I was able to
(ab)use a gpio-hog and cs-gpios to deal with this.

Unfortunately recent changes have stopped my hacks from working. I've
tried adapting cs-gpios to work with my particular hardware but I came
to the realisation that the current cs-gpios support assumes a 1:1
mapping of gpio to SPI device whereas my hardware used the state of the
gpio selecting the device i.e. a 1:2 mapping.

This is my attempt to implement a driver to deal with this. One nice
property is that it is pretty much self contained. The only change to
the core SPI infrastructure is exposing a function I needed to lookup
the spi_controller instance.

  dt-bindings: spi: Add spi-mux-gpio
  spi: Make of_find_spi_controller_by_node visible
  spi: Add SPI bus gpio multiplexer
