This is a revisit of two earlier efforts to add more complex mutliplexing to
SPI busses.

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/2706151/
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10897255/

This version makes use of the general purpose mux controller which simplifies
things greatly.

One outstanding problem is the need for the spi-max-frequency on the mux
device. This is not used for anything and is just needed to satisfy the spi
driver infrastructure which expects all spi devices to have this property.

Add binding documentation for the spi-mux driver. This allows a generic
multiplexer to be used to provide access to multiple SPI devices.

Notes:
    Changes in v3:
    - make dt_binding_check clean (properly this time)
    
    Changes in v2:
    - update license

+description: |
+  This binding describes a SPI bus multiplexer to route the SPI chip select
+  signals. This can be used when you need more devices than the SPI controller
+  has chip selects available. An example setup is shown in ASCII art; the actual
+  setting of the multiplexer to a channel needs to be done by a specific SPI mux
+  driver.

Add a SPI device driver that sits in-band and provides a SPI controller
which supports chip selects via a mux-control. This enables extra SPI
devices to be connected with limited native chip selects.

Thanks for an update, my comments below.

Redundant line.

I think Mark wants to have this in one line with C++ style of comments.

Perhaps sorted?

This is a bit complicated.

Why not simple do

  if (IS_ERR(priv->mux)) {
    ret = PTR_ERR(...);
    ...
  }

?

I'm wondering why SPI core can't handle this by default (like GPIO
subsystem does).

Comma is not needed in terminator line.

I've had other maintainers/reviewers suggest the opposite for patches
I've submitted to other subsystems which is why I went with
PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO. It also works well with the goto err_put_ctlr; which
needs ret to be set. It's not exactly a common pattern in the spi code
so I'd be happy to go the other way if that's the desired convention
for spi.

We do have it for spi devices in of_register_spi_device(). I'm not
aware of any reason spi_register_controller() couldn't do the same for
controllers. It would affect a large number of drivers so should
probably be separate to this series. It's probably reasonably
automatable with coccinelle.

Either way is the same amount of lines. The slight difference, that we
don't check for 0. Can you check if generated code is different in
these cases?
