Double Transfer Rate uses the same wire.
But as you sample at both the rising and the falling edges of the clock, this
makes the cpha setting meaningless for such transfers, I think ;-)

However, as the future may bring us QDR, perhaps this should not be a
boolean flag, but an integer value?
Cfr. spi-tx-bus-width vs. the original spi-tx-dual/spi-tx-quad proposal.

What would be a good name (as we only need one)? spi-data-phases?
