No need to add hardware spinlock proctection due to add multiple
msater channel, so change it to be optional in documentation.

Required properties:
- compatible: Should be "sprd,sc9860-adi".
- reg: Offset and length of ADI-SPI controller register space.
-- hwlocks: Reference to a phandle of a hwlock provider node.
-- hwlock-names: Reference to hwlock name strings defined in the same order

- #address-cells: Number of cells required to define a chip select address
on the ADI-SPI bus. Should be set to 1.
- #size-cells: Size of cells required to define a chip select address size
on the ADI-SPI bus. Should be set to 0.

- sprd,hw-channels: This is an array of channel values up to 49 channels.
