Subject[PATCH] spi: Add missing error handling for CS GPIOs
While devm_gpiod_get_index_optional() returns NULL if the GPIO is not
present (i.e. -ENOENT), it may still return other error codes, like
-EPROBE_DEFER. Currently these are not handled, leading to
unrecoverable failures later in case of probe deferral:

gpiod_set_consumer_name: invalid GPIO (errorpointer)
gpiod_direction_output: invalid GPIO (errorpointer)
gpiod_set_value_cansleep: invalid GPIO (errorpointer)
gpiod_set_value_cansleep: invalid GPIO (errorpointer)
gpiod_set_value_cansleep: invalid GPIO (errorpointer)

Detect and propagate errors to fix this.
