This is a followup to the series "spi: introduce SPI_CS_WORD mode flag" [1] to
address some review comments.

- The first two patches handle the case for GPIO CS
- The last patch is the IIO patch from the previous series with an expanded
  commit message.

This modifies the condition for using the software fallback
implementation for SPI_CS_WORD when the SPI controller is using a GPIO
for the CS line. When using a GPIO for CS, the hardware implementation
won't work, so we just enable the software fallback globally in this
case.

This remove the check and subsequent return of error for the case when
a SPI device requires SPI_CS_WORD and is also configured to use a GPIO

Commit a134cc414e86 ("spi: always use software fallback for SPI_CS_WORD

This changes how the SPI message for the triggered buffer is setup in
the TI ADS7950 A/DC driver. By using the SPI_CS_WORD flag, we can read
multiple samples in a single SPI transfer. If the SPI controller
supports DMA transfers, we can see a significant reduction in CPU usage.

For example, on an ARM9 system running at 456MHz reading just 4 channels
at 100Hz: before this change, top shows the CPU usage of the IRQ thread
of this driver to be ~7.7%. After this change, the CPU usage drops to
~3.8%.

The use of big-endian for the raw data was cargo culted from another
driver when this driver was originally written. It used an SPI word size
of 8 bits and big-endian byte ordering to effectively emulate 16 bit
words.

Now, in order to inject a CS toggle between each word, we need to use
the correct word size, otherwise we would get a CS toggle half way
through each word 16-bit. The SPI subsystem uses CPU byte ordering for
multi-byte words. So, the data we get back from the SPI is going to be
CPU endian now no matter what. Converting that to big endian will just
add overhead on little endian systems so we opt to change the raw data
format from big endian to CPU endian.

There is a small risk that this could break some lazy userspace programs
that use the raw data without checking the data format. We can address
this if/when it actually comes up.

I've applied this on top of the original series on the basis I doubt
anyone will be testing this particular driver in such a way as to hit the
changes you made in the last two patches + I don't think Mark has tagged
those for me to easily pick up.  If it's a problem I can apply them
to the IIO tree as well and git will sort it out come merge window time.
However, that's inelegant so I won't do it unless needed.

Applied to the togreg branch of iio.git and pushed out as testing for
the autobuilders to play with it

Thanks,

Jonathan
