This does a lot of configuration, as far as I can see only the clock
rate can actually vary per transfer though?  The mode configuration
looks like it should be moved to prepare instead, the divider settings
can be done with a read/modify/write.  It's also not clear to me why
spcr and sper are being stored in the driver data, we never read the
values outside of this function.

This is kind of confusing - _do_transfer() doesn't actually do the
transfer so far as I can see, write_read() does the transfer?  Probably
both functions should be renamed, or even just inlined here - it's
really configuring the clocks and transferring the data.

Otherwise this looks good.
