Subject[PATCH 4.9 20/26] spi: bcm2835aux: remove dangerous uncontrolled read of fifo
Date
[ Upstream commit c7de8500fd8ecbb544846dd5f11dca578c3777e1 ]

This read of the fifo is a potential candidate for a race condition
as the spi transfer is not necessarily finished and so can lead to
an early read of the fifo that still misses data.

So it has been removed.

Fixes: 1ea29b39f4c812ec ("spi: bcm2835aux: add bcm2835 auxiliary spi device...")
