I'm working on a rpi cape which uses this device
https://github.com/analogdevicesinc/linux/blob/master/drivers/iio/frequency/adf4371.c
which is connected in 3-WIRE mode. I could confirm that spi was not
working.

In my case, __spi_validate() was ok because my device driver is passing
one of rx or tx as NULL. The problem is in spi_map_msg() which
allocates dummy buffers (because of the ctrl flags). As a result, in
bcm2835_spi_transfer_one() we set "cs |= BCM2835_SPI_CS_REN;" when we
want to do tx only. I believe this was the actual problem...

This looks great. I will try to give this a try still today.
