So do we need any coordinating here, are we OK w/ trogdor devices
being broken for a short period of time?

I think the device tree changes switching to use GPIO for chip select
is already queued in linux-next.  That means if we land this patch
before the fix to cros_ec [1] then we'll end up in a broken state.
Would we be able to do some quick landing to get the cros-ec fix into
v5.10 and then target the SPI patch for 5.11?
