spi_cs_clk_delay -> Adds Delay from CS line toggle to Clock line toggle
spi_inter_words_delay -> Adds inter-word delay for each transfer.

Could you please provide more information on accommodating these
parameters in
SPI core structures like spi_device or spi_transfer? Why because these
are very
specific to SPI GENI controller.

This is required to set the SPI controller max frequency.
As it is specific to the controller, so looks meaningful to specify it
in dtsi.
Also, spi core framework will set the transfer speed to controller max
if transfer frequency is greater than controller max frequency.
Please mention if you have a other opinion.

Code snippet from spi.c
2826 if (ctlr->max_speed_hz && xfer->speed_hz > ctlr->max_speed_hz)
2827 xfer->speed_hz = ctlr->max_speed_hz;

clock_get_rate() will returns the rate which got set as per the
clock plan(which was the rounded up frequency). For that reason
using the cur_speed_hz.
