Possible. Will re-send anyway with your feedback fixes.

> Why are these being done as nVidia specific properties rather than generic ones and why are these being configured in DT rather than by the client driver? If the devices have particular timing requirements for chip select presumably that's going to apply no matter what controller or system they're used with so it seems best to configure this in the client driver and have an API that any controller can implement.

These are implemented thru DT as Tegra SPI is master and master controls the timing.
Some SPI slaves have specific requirements of certain CS setup/hold time and inactive cycles which SPI master should meet when driving during transfer and Tegra SPI controller supports tuning these parameters.
