You see, there are two unrelated drivers that share the same issue
(the common denominator is that they are SPI devices). I believe the
issue is somewhere in the SPI core rather than here.

Compare the code of
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/i2c/i2c-core-base.c#L649
vs.
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/spi/spi.c#L56

and

https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/i2c/i2c-core-base.c#L139
vs.
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/drivers/spi/spi.c#L361

The culprit is this one:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190618052644.32446-1-bjorn.andersson@linaro.org/

and in my humble opinion must be reverted.
