The below patch will fix error handling and will make things mostly
work on nyan_big, because we'll fall back to V2 protocol after the
initial failure. But we should still investigate why we're getting
errors on the first host command. We aren't seeing these errors when
we send commands from firmware, so I suspect something is wrong in
kernel SPI HW initialization that causes the first command to fail.

Subject: [PATCH] mfd: cros ec: spi: Fix "in progress" error signaling

For host commands that take a long time to process, cros ec can return
early by signaling a EC_RES_IN_PROGRESS result. The host must then poll
status with EC_CMD_GET_COMMS_STATUS until completion of the command.

None of the above applies when data link errors are encountered. When
errors such as EC_SPI_PAST_END are encountered during command
transmission, it usually means the command was not received by the EC.
Treating such errors as if they were 'EC_RES_IN_PROGRESS' results is
almost always the wrong decision, and can result in host commands
silently being lost.
