Ok, didn't know about this tag

The idea was to have 2 for testing, 1st one is already applicable, while 
the other must be tested, but I can send only one with no problem.

No, it doesn't, the 2nd one change the way it achieve the same thing, 
because the 1st swap DCLK phase, while the 2nd uses the IO_POL bit to 
set IO polarity according to bus_flags.
