Subject[PATCH 4.19 267/276] spi: imx: stop buffer overflow in RX FIFO flush
[ Upstream commit c842749ea1d32513f9e603c074d60d7aa07cb2ef ]

Commit 71abd29057cb ("spi: imx: Add support for SPI Slave mode") added
an RX FIFO flush before start of a transfer. In slave mode, the master
may have sent more data than expected and this data will still be in the
RX FIFO at the start of the next transfer, and so needs to be flushed.

However, the code to do the flush was accidentally saving this data into
the previous transfer's RX buffer, clobbering the contents of whatever
followed that buffer.

Change it to empty the FIFO and throw away the data. Every one of the
RX functions for the different eCSPI versions and modes reads the RX
FIFO data using the same readl() call, so just use that, rather than
using the spi_imx->rx function pointer and making sure all the different
rx functions have a working "throw away" mode.

There is another issue, which affects master mode when switching from
DMA to PIO. There can be extra data in the RX FIFO which triggers this
flush code, causing memory corruption in the same manner. I don't know
why this data is unexpectedly in the FIFO. It's likely there is a
different bug or erratum responsible for that. But regardless of that,
I think this is proper fix the for bug at hand here.
